Well run vaccination program

Posted

To the Editor,

Recently I received my first vaccine injection which was by appointment for the seventy-five and over residents who live in Warwick. The vaccine site was located in East Greenwich. From the moment my wife and I arrived at the site we were greeted by a local police officer who directed us where to park and where to enter the site. I was thirty minutes early, which was allowed as I anticipated a long line in the cold outside and an even longer wait inside before being vaccinated.

We found the entrance with no line outside and when entering a man took our temperature and ushered us into a large room where they had set up their vaccination site. We went to a desk and gave my I.D. and received a card with the date and time for my second shot. I then proceeded to a short line for the injection. Within ten minutes upon our arrival at the site I was injected with the vaccine. We then waited the 15 minutes which is protocol and left.

I could not have been more pleased with a public service that was so well organized and extremely caring and friendly. It was supported by local police and fire and other volunteers and all were very courteous and informative. I sincerely recommend using this method as a model for all future vaccination sites throughout the United States.
