Never Underestimate the Power of a Sign

Drive-Thru Vaccine site set up in Pennsylvania

On March 2, U.S. President Joe Biden assured the American people that the country is on track to provide coronavirus vaccines for every adult by the end of May. This will require an estimated 260 million vaccines.

To fulfill this mission, vaccination sites are being set up nationwide. Some mega sites, such as Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and State Farm Stadium near Phoenix, are poised to vaccinate at least 12,000 people per day. Meanwhile, small towns and rural areas with unincorporated populations are setting up sites that draw people from a 50-plus-mile radius.

When it comes to traffic flow, the CDC recommends using "rope or cones, tape, and signs in multiple languages, as needed, outside the clinic entrance area and inside the clinic." This advice provides good general guidance. But as a site organizer, perhaps you could use more clarity.

Going With the Flow

The importance of ensuring good traffic flow, whether of cars or people, at a vaccination site, cannot be overstated. It makes the difference between sites people recommend to family and friends and sites that quickly turn into logistical nightmares. Traffic flow can also be the differentiator between positive and negative media coverage.
