Montgomery County, Maryland, students have joined their teachers in an effort to ensure that residents most at-risk during the coronavirus pandemic are able to secure their vaccinations.
Sherwood High School 11th grade students Kashmira Heaton-Vakharia, 16, and Fernando Johnson, 17, began volunteering as “vaccine hunters” about a month ago.
Their Spanish teacher, Tanya Aguilar, is part of a group of Montgomery County schoolteachers who started scouring websites to get appointments for older residents, or for those who don’t speak English and are considered vulnerable.
The teenagers said they were excited to be a part of the effort.
