What a great day! So many smiling faces of both volunteers and Sarasota residents at the vaccine clinic held at the Van Wezel today! Thank you to all of those who supported this event today. We had 70+ volunteers - all working in different areas. A special thank you to Sarasota’s finest police department and emergency medical service! We appreciate the support!! Everyone had a job to do - from the healthcare vaccinators to the traffic controllers. No job was too big or too small. We got it done... 2,000 shots, that is the goal! We’re excited to do it all again tomorrow!!
