Public-Private Partnership to Deliver Second Vaccination Dose to 16,000

Feb 11, 2021 04:52PM ● By Kristy Huddle
Charlotte Motor Speedway will host its second mass vaccination clinic this weekend. This event is exclusively for the roughly 16,000 community members who received their initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine three weeks ago at the speedway. While the first dose gets the body’s immune system ready, the second dose is critical to providing full protection from the COVID-19 virus.

These and an earlier mass vaccination event at Bank of America Stadium are part of a unique public-private partnership which includes Atrium Health, Honeywell, Tepper Sports & Entertainment and Charlotte Motor Speedway which announced a bold plan of distributing 1 million doses of the vaccine by July 4, 2021. With support from the State of North Carolina and Gov. Roy Cooper, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and local governments, these organizations are working together to administer vaccinations, provide logistics and operations support, and offer venues for an efficient and safe initiative.

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION:

• The mass vaccination clinics will run from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Friday, Feb. 12 – Sunday, Feb.14, 2021.
• Only people who received their initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine during last month’s mass vaccination at Charlotte Motor Speedway are eligible to take part.
• Appointments are required, and everyone eligible has been contacted to let them know their scheduled time.
• People taking part are encouraged not to arrive more than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to avoid creating long lines and wait times.
