“THIS IS FOR YOUR SECOND DOSE, CORRECT?” SO TODAY WE HAD OUR

[00:00:04]

FIRST MASS VACCINATION EVENT THAT COMBINES BOTH FIRST-ROUND DOSES AND SECOND-ROUND DOSES, SO WE DID FIRST-ROUND DOSES THIS MORNING. WE HAD ALMOST 1,000 PEOPLE SHOW UP TO GET THEIR FIRST-ROUND DOSE, THAT’S GREAT. “HOLA MUCHACHOS” (SPANISH) (SPANISH) “WE’RE SO EAGER TO HELP.” WE’VE INVITED JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN 3,500 PEOPLE, AND WE HOPE WE GET AS CLOSE TO THAT MARK AS POSSIBLE. WE THINK WE CAN DO CONSIDERABLY MORE HERE. THIS IS A GREAT TEST. WE HAD A GREAT TURNOUT.

EARLY ON THIS AFTERNOON.

ALMOST 800 PEOPLE THROUGH IN THE FIRST HOUR, AND WE WANT MORE.

THEY’RE FAST, EFFICIENT, FRIENDLY, UM ORGANIZED, AND WE ARE JUST, THIS IS OUR SECOND SHOT WE’RE THRILLED. “TURN THE MOTOR OFF, PUT IT IN PARK.” UNFORTUNATELY WE AND A PRETTY BIG NO-SHOW RATE FOR THE FIRST EVENT THIS MORNING.

ALMOST 50% NO-SHOWS, WHICH IS UNFORTUNATE, BUT WE’LL CERTAINLY SERVE THE PEOPLE THAT ARRIVE. THE PEOPLE WITH APPOINTMENTS THAT ARRIVE, WILL CERTAINLY SERVE.

WHAT WE WOULD ASK IS THAT INDIVIDUALS WHO RECEIVE AN APPOINTMENT OR AN INVITATION, IF YOU NO LONGER NEED A VACCINE, PLEASE JUST LET US KNOW, WE’LL TAKE YOU OFF THE LIST AND WE’LL INVITE SOMEBODY ELSE IN YOUR PLACE.

I ALREADY RECEIVED MY FIRST DOSE SO I KNOW IT’S VERY IMPORTANT, YOU KNOW, TO GET THE SECOND DOSE, TO GET THE FULL EFFECT.

“I’M OUT HERE TODAY BECAUSE THIS IS SO IMPORTANT TO THE RESIDENTS THE CITY OF GARLAND, ROWLETT AND SACHSE, AND AS A SERVANT LEADER, I DON’T ASK PEOPLE TO DO WHAT I WON’T DO MYSELF.

AND TIME IS A PRECIOUS COMMODITY, AND I WANTED TO BE A CONTRIBUTOR IN THIS EFFORT. “I’M THE OFFICIAL STICKER GIRL.” AGAIN, THIS IS A GREAT ILLUSTRATION OF THE TEAMWORK THE COOPERATION BETWEEN NOT ONLY GARLAND, ROWLETT AND SASCHE, BUT ALSO GARLAND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT. THOSE THREE JURISDICTIONS, HAVE PROVIDED PERSONNEL FOR THIS EVENT, AND CERTAINLY THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS DONATED THIS IDEAL VENUE FOR A MASS VACCINATION EVENT, SO THANKS TO ALL THOSE JURISDICTIONS. “WE ACTUALLY FEEL GREAT, WE’RE HERE LIKE I MENTIONED FOR OUR LAST DOSE, THE FIRST DOSE, THE ONLY THING I EXPERIENCED WAS YOU KNOW, JUST SORENESS, OTHER THAN THAT? NO OTHER SYMPTOMS. ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO ADD? I’D BE MORE AFRAID NOT TO GET IT.
