Here's how these outings are possible - I got the vaccine! It was really exciting and I'm so incredibly grateful to have gotten both of my shots.
I got both of my shots at the Pipkin Buildings at the Memphis Fairgrounds. It has garage-like doors on either side, so they directed people to drive right through the building to get their vaccines. On the right of the top sketch you can see the line waiting to drive in.
On the top left is the inside of the building, with the medical professionals giving the shots in front of the outside door. I think they must have had us wait in the building, but I can't remember now. I went to vaccination sites six times - I took my mother-in-law twice, my husband twice, and myself twice. Each time was a completely different process.
By the time I got my second shot, the National Guard had set up a temporary location next to the Pipkin building to accommodate more people, so here you can see some of the medical professionals preparing to give shots to everyone in the bus in front of us.
One of the National Guards asked if we wanted a sticker and he was surprised to get a loud and emphatic, "YES I WOULD LOVE A STICKER!"
I want to say again how grateful I am to have gotten a vaccine so easily. I am having so much fun hugging my friends again.
