Of all the “good” stories I’ve done this year, this one might be the most hopeful and inspiring.
The first trucks carrying the COVID-19 vaccine left a Pfizer plant in Michigan yesterday (12/13) and hit the road with a police escort. The scene was nothing short of amazing… a reporter in Detroit captured it on video while onlookers cheered and clapped.
Minutes ago, trucks filled with #coronavirus vaccines departed the @pfizer facility in Portage, Mich., headed for distribution centers and airports. Crowds who gathered outside the facility cheered the departing @FedEx and @UPS trucks. https://t.co/F29rcw6WcV pic.twitter.com/ZsTG2h5vJI

Locally here in Connecticut, the vaccine arrived this morning at Hartford Hospital. Doctors and healthcare workers there were some of the first to receive the shots. Including Dr. Ajay Kumar who became the first Hartford Healthcare employee to receive the vaccine.
