Volunteers are key at vaccine sites. It pays off with a shot

Shawn Brown, right, receives the second does of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine from a volunteer worker at left, at a mass vaccination clinic at Seattle University, Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, in Seattle. Brown got his first dose of the vaccine in January after a broken freezer storing the vaccine led to an urgent call over social media and other channels for people to rush in and be vaccinated before the doses expired. As states ramp up vaccination distribution in the fight against the coronavirus, volunteers are needed to do everything from direct traffic to check people in to keep vaccination sites running smoothly. In return for their work, they’re often given a shot — including those who are young and healthy and may not have otherwise been able to receive the shot until later in the year.
