ORLANDO, FL — Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings, along with Florida Department of Health in Orange County Director Dr. Raul Pino, recognized Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) Event Manager Janice Reindl with Orange County’s Public Health Hero Award on May 19 at the Orlando International Airport.
Reindl has served as the Event Manager for the COVID-19 mass vaccination site at the OCCC for the last five months.
“She is a shining example of a civil servant, and she truly deserves this honor,” said Demings during his remarks.
For five months, six days a week, Reindl helped to plan and organize the use of the Center’s North Concourse for the first COVID-19 mass vaccination site in Orange County.
Reindl also took on the task of feeding the staff and nurses by coordinating with numerous hotels, restaurants, bakeries and food trucks to feed the more than 200 team members it took to run the vaccination operation each day. This feat alone had a profound, positive impact on the staff’s morale, the OCCC reports.
