Letter to the Editor: Davie, what a great place to live

To the editor:

My wife and I received our second Pfizer dose on Feb. 3 at the vaccine clinic for people over 75 at the new community park in Mocksville. Moving the clinics to the spacious grounds of the old high school was brilliant. Traffic flowed smoothly thanks to the red light at Southwood Drive which ended the vexing traffic problems plaguing the clinics on Hospital Street.

The vaccine clinic was as well organized and efficient as anything I had seen in the Marines (my gold standard). The staff, both professional and volunteer, carried out their assignments with competence, compassion and unfailing good humor.

We were in and out in 45 minutes including the 15 minutes post-injection waiting period designed to reveal any serious side effects.

Fortunately, the only side effects we noticed was a swelling sense of pride in and affection for our younger neighbors who worked so hard and so diligently to protect us.

Davie County …what a great place to live.
