Three of the largest mass vaccination events in the US so far have been at the Carolina Panthers’ Stadium in Charlotte, NC; the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC; and the Dover International Speedway in Dover, Delaware.

1. Carolina Panthers’ Stadium, Charlotte, NC

  • The mass vaccination event held Friday, Jan. 29 to Sunday, Jan. 31 at the Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina was the “largest event in the U.S.” as of those dates. More than 19,000 or 20,000 people were vaccinated.
  • The event focused on vaccinating health care workers and people 65 and older, including with special outreach to communities of color.
  • The event offered both drive-up service and walk-up service. The location was chosen based on its “close proximity to the light rail and other public transportation options.”
  • The event, held as part of a partnership between Atrium Health, Honeywell, Tepper Sports & Entertainment, Charlotte Motor Speedway, and state and local governments, was advertised by Atrium Health, the State of North Carolina, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and local governments, mostly via their websites as well as press releases and conferences. Additionally, Atrium Health stated that they also worked directly with the local faith community to advertise the event. Patients registered via an app on their mobile phones.
