By now, you have most likely heard that the people who are getting the COVID-19 vaccine first are essential workers such as first responders or healthcare workers.
While that may be the case for most of the vaccines being given out, there are some cases where the general public has skipped the waiting queue and received a vaccine. For example, reports from ABC News indicate that people from Kentucky "lucked" into getting a COVID-19 vaccine by hanging around a Walgreens that happened to have excess doses.
Andrew Masterson spokes to ABC News via a phone interview and said that he and his wife were very fortunate to be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine, saying, "We were just in the right place at the right time. I just felt like I had to jump on this opportunity. But I do feel very guilty. We were just lucky." Walgreens noticed that it had excess vaccine doses that were soon going to expire, so the doses were offered to local first responders, Walgreens staff, and then residents in Louisville and Lexington.
Walgreens spokesperson Phil Caruso said, "COVID-19 vaccines are not available to the general public at this time. We experienced an isolated situation in which the amount of vaccine doses requested by facilities exceeded the actual need."
