MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. — The manager of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in the Carolinas is receiving praise from the town's mayor after lending a hand at a COVID vaccination site following a computer glitch.
The mayor of Mount Pleasant in South Carolina, Will Haynie, said traffic was backed up for an hour at a coronavirus vaccine drive-through in town after a "computer glitch," according to a Facebook post.
"We asked local Chic Fil A manager Jerry Walkowiak for help today after a computer glitch backed up things at the drive-through vaccination site. Instead of just giving advice, this video shows what he did," the mayor wrote.
"When you need help, call the pros," he added on Twitter.
He shared a video of the Chick-fil-A manager expertly directing traffic. The fast food restaurants have a reputation for having efficient and well-designed drive-throughs.
