DAVID OH: We have a lot of seniors, we have Asian-Americans, African-Americans, Caucasians. Lots of folks out and that's what it's all about. Trying to make sure that people who want to get vaccinated are being vaccinated. And you know, we have a lot of volunteers out here-- medical health care folks-- and it's really, they're the backbone of how this is working out.

- A reminder, we have a vaccine guide on our website CBSPhilly.com. There you'll find answers to questions about the COVID-19 shot.
