Bank of America Stadium transformed into COVID-19 vaccine clinic

Two days after announcing details on a mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, Atrium Health said all available appointments have been booked.

Atrium Health told WCNC Charlotte they expect around 19,000 people to be vaccinated at the three-day clinic this weekend. This comes after a successful clinic at Charlotte Motor Speedway led to approximately 16,000 vaccinations. The speedway clinic was run by a partnership between Atrium Health, Honeywell, Bank of America Stadium and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

This all comes as North Carolina confirmed its first case of the new COVID-19 strain in Mecklenburg County. The CDC says the highly contagious strain could become the dominant strain in the U.S. by March.
