Thank you to FirstHealth and Pinehurst Medical Clinic for providing an excellent experience receiving this lifesaving vaccine. Everyone involved in the vaccine clinic was friendly, professional and organized.

I am grateful that I live in Southern Pines with access to such wonderful health care. I give you all “five stars” along with my sincere gratitude.

Conrad and Kent, get over yourselves. You aren't even getting the vaccine, are you? So why do you care? It's the Maderna and Pfizer vaccine. Give credit where it's due.

Thanks to President Trump for Operation Warp Speed. We have a vaccine approved for use in direct conflict with all the naysayers that said it could not be done. Millions of doses have been administered despite what 'Ol Sleepy Joe says.
