People Waiting for Vaccine in Chilly Philadelphia Undeterred by Garbage Fire

A small garbage fire broke out next to a long line of people waited to be vaccinated against COVID-19 outside Philadelphia’s Liacouras Center on February 19, firefighters confirmed to local media.

Footage tweeted by @badguel_ shows smoke billowing as those in the line, which wrapped around the block, waited in the cold to be seen at a 24-hour walk-up clinic held by the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium.
