An Alabama woman is being commended for her efforts that led to getting 94% of the people in her town vaccinated.

Dorothy Oliver has dedicated her time to organizing a pop-up clinic in the small town of Panola, Alabama which currently has approximately 400 residents.

The documentary follows Oliver as she makes various attempts to ensure that her town is fully vaccinated.

With many small towns like Panola not having an official testing site, Oliver felt as though she had to do something.

Oliver, along with county commissioner Drucilla Russ-Jackson, asked the nearest hospital to set up a pop-up site in their town.

Just by having one-on-one informative dialogue with the residents in the community and by using her charm, Oliver has managed to get almost everyone in her town vaccinated.
