DOVER, Del. (AP) — The state of Delaware has begun its largest coronavirus vaccination event to date.

The News Journal reports that the inoculation effort kicked off Sunday at Dover International Speedway. The six-day drive-thru clinic represents a possible blueprint for future vaccine distribution. And it will have the capacity to vaccinate 3,000 people a day. The event is being operated by the state government in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Staff conducted a dress rehearsal Saturday night before the event opened at half-capacity on Sunday as a dry run. The event appeared to run smoothly Sunday.  The five vaccination stations that were set up rarely had a line of more than a few cars.
