Assembled over the span of about one week, Kate Willis, director of operations for Memorial Hermann, said the drive-thru clinic has been maintained through a network of over 500 CISD, Shenandoah and Memorial Hermann employees over the course of a weekend.
"They are working as hard as they can to get the community vaccinated," Willis said. "Everybody is really excited to be out here to help."
Jason Glover, vice president of operations for Memorial Hermann, said the doses received from the state were dedicated for Montgomery County.
"This partnership [with CISD] has really allowed us to impact Montgomery County and begin to work towards the end of the pandemic," Glover said.
This weekend's event is a follow-up to a previous clinic from three weeks ago, which allows community members who received their vaccines to get the necessary second dose.
Chris McCord, executive director of operations for CISD, said the two entities were able to quickly communicate and set the facility up.
"One of the best parts about it, and I do not say this a lot, is the sheer joy of people in relief and excitement about coming to get the shot," McCord said. "We hope this is a springboard in the county for everybody that wants to get the shot from one organization or another."
Willis said those looking to get vaccinated should anticipate a slight wait upon arrival and to bring their required documentation.
Glover and Willis said the clinic would not have been possible without help from the partnership of CISD, the city of Shenandoah for helping with security and traffic flow, and Milstead Towing for being present in the case of car issues and if a vehicle needed to be moved.
