CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – To kick off Labor Day weekend, the Herman & Herman law firm hosted a drive-thru vaccination service along the Corpus Christi Bayfront on Saturday morning.
“I’m here to get the COVID shot,” said Bryan Jackson as he received his first dose.
“We are finally getting our vaccine,” said patient Sherri Chavez.
Dozens of people have received their COVID-19 vaccine at the First United Methodist.
“We have such low rates here in Corpus Christi and in order to help stop the high numbers,” said Cari Casas, a Herman & Herman volunteer. “Vaccination is the way. “
The drive-through clinic was sponsored by the law firm and employees were able to volunteer with help from Walgreens.
“The higher the numbers and stuff like that, we realized we had to go ahead and do it,” Chavez said.
People were invited to register, but walk-in people were welcome. Jackson was on his way to HEB when he decided to get the shot.
“I just passed by and saw it,” Jackson said.
Patients only had to fill out forms, wear their masks and open their car door to receive a dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
“My loved ones pressured me to do this and my job made it difficult for not getting vaccinated, so I’m done with it,” Jackson said.
After their dose, they were simply asked to wait fifteen minutes on site to be monitored for an allergic reaction.
“We hope this is the first of many immunization clinics that we can offer and organize for the community,” said Debby Garcia, Herman & Herman employee and volunteer.
And, before their departure, patients received a $ 50 HEB gift card.
In 2020, Herman & Herman distributed 100,000 face masks among all of their offices.
On Saturday, they continued their efforts to keep Texans safe.
“We have to think about our future, about our children, who right now, some of them cannot get vaccinated. Garcia said. “If you are protected you will at least protect your family at home, so get vaccinated. “
The clinic operated from 8 a.m. to noon.
