NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Three sisters who have been on the front lines of the pandemic celebrated an important milestone Saturday.
Althea Scott-Bonaparte, Claudia Scott-Mighty and Christine Scott all got the second dose of the COVID vaccine together.
“Since we do everything together, it stands that we should have this vaccine together,” one sister said. “We want to set examples not only for the rest of our family but for the rest of our profession as well.”
