In case you somehow missed it, the vaccine is here! On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration authorized Pfizer’s coronavirus shot, and now shipments are arriving across the country to kick off the vaccination process of health workers.
This is a huge milestone in the months of a pandemic that has now killed 300,000 Americans and gives the ray of hope that an end to the devastation is in sight.
On Monday, Boston Medical Center employees got the delivery they’d been so excitedly waiting for. To celebrate, they gathered outside the hospital, many in their medical gear, to dance to Lizzo’s “Good as Hell”.
The hospital put the upbeat dance routine on TikTok, where it’s gone wildly viral and makes people pretty damn emotional.
‘Was this supposed to cry? Because I’m sobbing here, ”one person commented.
“All the big fights, long nights, you’ve been through,” one person commented while quoting the song, “I hope the vaccine brings them some rest and PTO. “
The hospital’s president and CEO, Kate Walsh, tweeted a video of the happy moment, calling it “a great day, a great place.”
“Why I love my job [at Boston Medical Center]Walsh tweeted. Teams of people working to distribute vaccines safely and equitably to their frontline colleagues are being encouraged by their friends who are celebrating the arrival of the vaccines! “
