Boston Medical Center Workers Celebrate COVID Vaccine Arrival in Viral TikTok

The staff at Boston Medical Center is celebrating the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine to their facilities in the most 2020 fashion: with a TikTok video. In a viral clip shared on Monday, doctors, nurses and other staff danced to Lizzo's "Good as Hell" in celebration. The Boston Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in Massachusetts to receive doses of the vaccine.

Kate Walsh, the CEO of Boston Medical Center and Health System, shared the clip on Twitter, and as of publishing, it has been viewed over 1 million times. Some of the dance appeared to be coordinated, while other folks were free-styling. Either way, it was a joyous celebration, and you can't help but smiling while watching the TikTok.

"Why I love my job @The_BMC⁩!" she wrote, sharing the delightful video. "Teams of people working to safely and equitably distribute vaccines to their front line colleagues getting cheered on by their friends celebrating the arrival of the vaccines! A great day, a great place."

According to NBC, Boston Medical Center received 1,950 doses of the FDA-approved Pfizer and BioNTech covid vaccine. BMC spokeswoman Jenny Eriksen Leary said that the hospital plans to start distributing the vaccines on Wednesday.

Among the first people to get the shots will be "front-line health care workers, including doctors and nurses in the intensive care unit, emergency department and patient floors that treat COVID-19 patients," NBC reported.

On Friday, the FDA approved of emergency use of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine in the United States. FDA commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn said that the agency "overwhelmingly agreed the vaccine benefits outweigh its risks," and encouraged everyone to get both doses of the vaccination when available to them.

Approximately 3 million vaccines are expected to initially be dispensed throughout the nation, with Boston receiving 60,000 vials to start, as per NBC.
