VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – While many of us are waiting for the COVID-19 vaccine, others are hunting.
The Vaccine Hunters Canada Twitter account (@VaxHuntersCan), with more than 185,000 followers, has been sharing when the shot becomes available at pharmacies across the country.
James Webber just booked an appointment for his wife in Surrey.
“I was at work, and all of a sudden I got an alert about the Safeway out in South Surrey … The Vaccine Hunters’ tweet had the link to go straight to the booking,” he explained.
