Pat O'Halloran Volunteers, Vaccinates and Upholds PDX People Values
A member of the PDX TSA team, Pat O’Halloran voluntarily deployed to Chicago, joining 40 other TSA personnel to assist the Chicago Department of Public Health with running a vaccination clinic for employees at O’Hare and Midway airports.
The team went through training and ran mini-clinics where they initially vaccinated about 250 people over a couple of days, before moving to a full-scale clinic. Clinic operations averaged about 450 vaccines a day, with the ability to do more as needed.
Pat went above and beyond, often working 12-hour days to ensure airport employees could receive a vaccine. Through his selfless service, a significant number of people were vaccinated. Not only did Pat represent PDX and TSA well, he brought back critical experience to share with the PDX team in our efforts to help others get vaccinated.
That's part of being knowledgeable, a core value for PDX People. This doesn’t just mean knowing all the answers – it also means sharing what you know with others.
