On the People Places and Opinions of Rome NY Facebook group, many have mixed feelings on this move:

Jessica: "Like i said on the post & will say it on here as well. You can still get covid with a covid vaccine"

Michele: "I guess I won't be going there. I still have no trust in vaccine and I do everything required to stay safe"

Brooke: "It’s a local small business trying to do something nice one day per week to make at-risk people feel a little more comfortable! Let’s try and see the compassion in the idea instead of bashing hardworking business owners!"

Laura: "It is being offered as an option as people transition through this pandemic. It’s along similar lines of the grocery stores setting aside early shopping times for the elderly or those in higher risk groups. It’s meant as a good thing. I hope it works out and people remain safe"
