The year 2020 has been tough for almost everyone, but especially for healthcare workers who have been at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus. The arrival of a vaccine against the highly infectious virus means hope, so it’s no wonder that health workers at Boston Medical Center burst into a happy dance after the center received its first shipment of the coronavirus vaccine. .
On Tuesday, workers at Boston Medical Center (BMC) went viral for a video showing them joyfully dancing after receiving the vaccine shipment. According to NBC Boston, the BMC was among the first hospitals in Massachusetts to receive a shipment of Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine.
The hospital’s president and chief executive, Kate Walsh, tweeted footage of healthcare workers wearing face masks and keeping social distances while dancing on the sidewalk at Lizzo’s “Good as Hell.”
“Teams of people working to safely and fairly distribute vaccines to their frontline colleagues being cheered on by their friends celebrating the arrival of vaccines!” he wrote sharing the clip. “A beautiful day, a beautiful place.”

“I’m so happy for them right now. Now, let’s all remember the rest of us have to hold onto it until we’re all vaccinated. We owe them so much, don’t let them down now,” wrote one person in the comments section.
“This is my favorite thing on the Internet today,” wrote another.
