Florida couple creates Facebook group to help seniors get vaccinated for COVID-19

When Parkland, Fla., couple Katherine Quirk and Russell Schwartz heard that the state planned to require citizens to make online appointments to get vaccinated, they immediately realized that seniors, like their parents, were going to face challenges using that interface.

On Jan. 1, they created a Facebook group to help seniors and their families find information on how and where to sign up for COVID-19 vaccine appointments. The Facebook page has more than 21,000 members, and the couple estimates that since they launched the effort, they have been able to help more than 1,000 seniors get vaccinated.
