    His parents raised this young man with so much empathy and compassion for others.

  2. You need to get into office son, and do this kind of work in government! Cheers to you!

    • What, help sign the elderly up to be free Guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical companies?…. Yea, real compassionate…
      Or, his mother is a politician that gets kickbacks from the drug companies.

      Keep lying to yourself though, you’ve been doing it for 60+yrs already.

  3. Great job, Benjamin K! He really is an Angel👏🏾

  4. Benjamin is proof that young people do not have to join the military to serve our country. Thank you for your service and god bless you!

    • If young people didn’t join the military, there wouldn’t be a country to serve. Making vaccination appointments for at-risk seniors is commendable but committing your life to mortal combat in defense of national security is on another level altogether.

    Wonderful. Notice how young people are untangling the mess our states have made of this?

  6. What a wonderful compassionate young man. He’ll do well in life with that level of empathy and intelligence. His grandparents should rest easily knowing this is their legacy.

  8. It shouldn’t be this hard to get vaccinated

  9. Youth emerging with initiatives and of course innovations is great to discover

  10. Such young talents are mocked and shamed by the Republican party. All they want are useless Gamers making Memes.

  12. Making the North Side proud! Well done, young sir! 🙌👏

  13. Nice to see furgeson from Clarissa Explains It All, found a new gig….

  14. That’s nice of the kid. I wouldn’t get the vaccine just because. Great for the kid helping seniors

  15. Now why can’t government do the same? Easy process ..cost, basically it cost time And a little tech knowledge .

  16. This kid is more helpful and effective than more than half of all of our politicians. (Before you say it; both sides)

    This kid is 14? Wow! Mature!

  19. Awsome, hes doing great. Hope there are more out there in the US.
    In Europe because the lack work, internships are changed to do this aswell.
    But i guess it’s hard with schools closed in the US.
