    OCHD Director Teresa Gamsky said the clinic was a success in part because of the church’s facility and several areas where volunteers administered the vaccine. Volunteers opened lines for adults only, people with special needs and for families, which Gamsky said offered privacy and quiet for parents waiting with young children to receive the vaccine.
