Josh Gaither, MD:  We're at the Tucson Convention Center. We're providing COVID vaccines under Pima County in the State of Arizona through the Tucson Fire Department. My job as the medical director here is to ensure that the medical care provided through the vaccination process is appropriate, safe, and, most importantly, fast. And we get the most people vaccinated as possible. So, I was really pleasantly surprised to see the NDMS group show up to help. For me as an NDMS medical officer myself, when I heard they were coming, I knew exactly what to expect. Our NDMS team would come along with paramedics, nurses, doctors, other healthcare professionals that were trained and ready to get to work. We were able to integrate them with our team here at the Tucson Convention Center to provide safe, effective care, and vaccinate as many people as we can at this site.
