When a computer glitch in a Charleston suburb caused a backup at a coronavirus vaccine drive-thru, the mayor of the South Carolina town called in the experts.
According to KULV, a local radio station, Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie reached out to nearby Chick-fil-A Manager Jerry Walkowiak, who came to the rescue when the line grew to about an hour’s wait.
“When you need help, you call the pros,” Haynie wrote in a tweet.

Georgia and Pennsylvania share the same progress in the early stages of the rollout with 5 percent of the state populations each having received at least one dose.
