Two Long Island teens are taking action to help those having trouble booking a vaccine appointment online.
Harvey Long and Amber Sun from Great Neck High School started "New York Vaccine Angels," which aims to help Asian Americans, other non-English speakers and those who aren't computer savvy.
The pair says they were inspired by a Chicago teen who runs a similar program. They're hoping their computer skills will help others finally get their shots.
"You know that you are basically changing lives by doing this," says Sun. "With this, people are able to see their family, they are able to go in to their jobs feeling secure, they are basically able to live their lives."
The pair says they are already getting lots of requests, and could even use some volunteer angels to help them out.
