Photos: American Front-Line Workers Get The COVID-19 Vaccine

Over the weekend, vials of precious COVID-19 vaccine shipped out across the U.S., and on Monday, Americans began what's likely to be a lengthy vaccination effort.

In Boston, the first packages of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine arrived at Boston Medical Center early Monday morning, where inoculations are expected to begin Tuesday or Wednesday. Other area hospitals will likely get the vaccine early this week.
