Charlotte Motor Speedway will be the first major sporting venue in North Carolina to turn into a COVID-19 vaccine clinic as thousands of people signed up for appointments this weekend.
The clinic, which will run Friday through Sunday, is by appointment only, and the speedway’s Scott Cooper said all time slots have been taken for this clinic.
“We want to do our part to try to help people get out and about again,” Cooper said. “Taking this vaccine is really a step in that direction.”
The clinic is part of a public-private partnership announced by Atrium Health last week to establish mass vaccination sites and inoculate 1 million North Carolinians by July 4, 2021. #WakeUpCLT #COVID19 #Coronavirus
