A video of health workers at a Boston hospital breaking into a celebratory dance after receiving their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine spreads widely on social media.
In the video that is now making the rounds on social media, Boston Medical Center (BMC) health care workers are seen dancing in front of the facility as they prepare to receive the vaccines.
The health workers wear face masks, shields and scrubs and dance to the hit of the American singer Lizzo “Good as Hell.”
The video, which was originally posted on the hospital’s TikTok account, was shared on Twitter by BMC CEO Kate Walsh.
“Why I love my job @The_BMC! Teams of people working to safely and fairly distribute vaccines to their frontline colleagues are cheered on by their friends as they celebrate the arrival of the vaccines! A great day, a great place, ”she wrote.
