Amazon’s Seattle headquarters once again turned into a COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
Hundreds waited their turn to roll up their sleeves to get their second dose of the vaccine.
“It’s just a tremendous sense of liberation,” said Robert Closter.
The tech giant and Virginia Mason Franciscan Health first partnered at the end of January for the first pop up clinic. Those same folks were supposed to return for their second doses last week but the clinic had to be postponed because of the snow.
“I wouldn’t have been able to have gotten here. I live on a dead end street on an incline and my whole car was buried,” said Pamela Leptich of West Seattle.
Leptich is relieved everything worked out.
“I’m really excited. It was kind of scary waiting another week for this but this operation is pretty awesome altogether,” Leptich added.
Because of delays in vaccine deliveries due to winter storms across the country, Robert Closter, a retired emergency room doctor, didn’t know what to expect until he got here.
“My concern had been with the effect of the recent weather on the supplies getting here and the number of cancellations of other clinics I was concerned that once again it would be postponed,” Closter explained.
But the clinic went off without a hitch. Along with the shots, there was a dose of hope.
