Equestrian areas like racecourses, The Kentucky Horse Park, and, above, the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) have been able to play a role in the fight against COVID-19 in their use as vaccination sites. Organizers of the vaccination clinic at TIEC  have been able to utilize the indoor arena and allow recipients of the vaccine to drive to drive on in and remain in their car throughout the process. Polk County Health Director Josh Kennedy, who has been essential in mobilizing the community to volunteer for the vaccine rollout, believes that TIEC would make an excellent site to host a mass regional vaccination event that could potentially administer 5,000 doses per day.
