NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - As the Nashville Predators take the ice for a must-win home game, Metro Health offered Smashville a unique opportunity to get COVID-19 vaccines.
News4 spoke with Stacey Sordahl and her son, Casey, who got the vaccine together on Thursday.
Casey is the one who convinced his mom to get the shot ahead of the playoff game.
"Instead of waiting 15 minutes on me, wait 15 minutes on your shot," Casey Barrier who got the vaccine said.
At the pop-up vaccination event, Metro Health had two vaccines. They offered the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine to anyone 18 and older and the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine to anyone 12 and up.
"We want to make it convenient. We want to make it easy," James Tabor with Metro Health said.
Tabor said they kept the vaccines stored in coolers powered by a generator. Tabor explained the reason behind the event.
"We want to go where the people are at and the Preds have a huge fan base here in this region and a lot of people are coming to this area and we want to be here for that," Tabor said.
For Sordahl and her son, the vaccine gives them peace of mind.
"I'm sure I'll thank him down the line one day," Sordahl said.
