It cannot be denied – the efficiency of Chick-fil-A’s drive-thru line is unmatched.
In an effort to streamline the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie called on Chick-fil-A manager Jerry Walkowiak to help organize and streamline the distribution of the vaccine in his city.
On January 22nd, Walkowiak came out to the drive-thru vaccination clinic, which was housed in the Seacoast Church parking lot, to direct traffic – an effort that shrank the vaccine wait time from over an hour to a mere 15 minutes.
Mayor Haynie tweeted a video of Walkowiak directing traffic and was shocked by the response. Haynie said, “It just went everywhere. You would think the story would be that we’re not only blessed to have the vaccine before many people get it, but you can get it in a drive-thru line from the comfort of your car. But no, the story is that the people who sell chicken sandwiches were running that line.”
Officials hope to continue to use the experience and expertise of others to help distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.
