    It’s been a long and excruciatingly hard year for health care employees on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of medical staff across the US will finally receive the COVID-19 vaccine, signaling a light at the end of the 12-month tunnel.

    On Tuesday, workers at the Boston Medical Center (BMC) went viral with a heartwarming celebration upon receiving their first doses of the coronavirus vaccine. Isn't such a long-awaited delivery a reason to dance? 

    In a TikTok video tweeted by BMC President Kate Walsh, BMC staff, some wearing yellow hospital gowns, others in scrubs and all wearing face shields and masks, are seen dancing on the sidewalk to Lizzo’s “Good as Hell”. Walsh shared that this cheerful moment represented her love for her job. 

    Pfizer began shipping its COVID-19 vaccine on Sunday, with the first shots given to health departments and hospital employees early Monday morning. The BMC received 1,950 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and plans to inoculate staffers on Wednesday, with front-line health care workers who are directly treating COVID-19 patients to be the first to get the shot.

    ​The clip of the heartwarming celebration has since gone viral across social media, with many appreciating the hard work of the healthcare employees.
