Thousands of fans came out Friday, July 25, 2014, for the Fan Fest event at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

— The Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium and Charlotte Motor Speedway will soon transform into mass COVID-19 vaccination sites.

The effort is part of a unique public-private partnership to help achieve the goal of completing 1 million COVID-19 vaccinations by July 4, 2021.

"Getting vaccines in people’s arms as quickly and equitably as possible is a top priority for North Carolina," said Gov. Roy Cooper. "Partnerships with businesses, health providers and government like this can help get it done."

"We look forward to working with our partners to make this event happen," said Gibbie Harris, public health director for Mecklenburg County. "The only way to get the virus behind us is for people to be vaccinated. I also hope that by July, by working together, we can exceed the goal of 1 million people in this region starting to be protected."
