Getting on a list to get your COVID vaccine, can be challenging and time-consuming. And that’s especially true for some older people. So a Wood County police officer decided to do something to help.

Officer Ron Craig is the community policing officer in Lake Township, OH. After hearing that some older residents were having a tough time scheduling an appointment because they didn’t have a smart phone or computer, he decided to take action.

With the blessing of his Lake Township Chief Mark Hummer, and the help of the Wood County Health Department, he was able to get appointments coordinated in a matter of days, ABC 13 reports.

So far, Officer Craig has helped about 150 seniors get their shots.
