Abstract: Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, drive-through testing centers have proven more effective in expanding testing capacity than traditional clinic models. If this infrastructure is repurposed and expanded for a large-scale vaccination campaign, it can facilitate throughput, reduce resource use, and overcome barriers associated with vaccine adoption and distribution.
