    North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper toured the federally supported Greensboro Community Vaccination Center located at the Four Seasons Town Centre in Greensboro, North Carolina, March 9, 2021.

    He met with several North Carolina National Guard leaders including Maj. Gen. Todd Hunt, NCNG Adjutant General, NCNG Soldiers, other military, and civilian personnel learning more about the indoor and drive-thru vaccination clinics with the capacity to provide up to 3,000 vaccinations per day.

    “We are grateful to have all our partners here,” said Cooper.

    North Carolina Emergency Management Director Mike Sprayberry welcomed Cooper to the vaccination clinic set up in a large parking lot and a vacant part of a department store.

    Cooper walked to each station where individuals needing an inoculation were registered, given the COVID vaccine, checked for any unexpected reaction.

    There was constant activity as he was briefed by civilian and military experts on each area and what it did to make the process run quicker and provide the maximum number of shots with the minimum delay.

    “Thank you, thank you, thank you, the logistics are amazing,” said Cooper.

    There were quick question and answer sessions highlighting operations.

    During the entire tour personnel continued operations greeting citizens, answering their questions about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine.

    Administrative teams kept track of each inoculation by computer or wireless tablet. Medical professionals measured the vaccine doses and prepared many syringes for use as medics administered the shots.

    “It is very rewarding and I contribute to the community I live in,” said Pvt. Daniel Snear assigned to the NCNG’s 171st Engineer Company, 130th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade.

    The federally-supported COVID-19 Community Vaccination Center located at Four Seasons Town Centre is strategically located to continue the state’s goal of vaccinating more marginalized and underserved communities.

    The center will be open from March 10 through May 4, seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with the capacity to provide up to 3,000 vaccinations per day. The federal government will provide the center’s vaccine supply, which will be in addition to North Carolina’s weekly vaccine allotment.
