On March 14, nearly one year after the first COVID-19 case was reported in North Carolina's Iredell County, Manheim Statesville hosted a drive-thru vaccination clinic for the Iredell County Health Department and provided 20 Manheim Statesville employees to support the event.

“When the Iredell County Health Department (ICHD) approached us about hosting this drive-thru clinic, we immediately wanted to help,” said Manheim Statesville General Manager Mandy Savage.  

Iredell County Health Department Director Jane Hinson shared that one of the county’s biggest challenges in its fight against COVID-19 was not inadequate vaccine supply, but rather finding adequate space to administer the shots.

As Manheim Statesville’s parking lot can accommodate hundreds of vehicles, the company was able to support the Iredell County Health Department in this important community effort. As a result, 1,197 people received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine safely and efficiently. 

“One of Manheim’s core values is giving back to the communities in which we live and work,” added Savage. “I am so proud of our team and the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received from the county and members of the community.”
