People camp out to get COVID-19 vaccine in Lehigh Acres – Florida

At least 10 people were camping out in Lehigh Acres Monday night in hopes to be first in line for round two of coronavirus vaccines at East County Regional Library Tuesday.

The lines became so long in Estero Monday, the health department had to turn people away.

The first couple we spoke to in the Lehigh Acres line told us they arrived at the site at 1:30 p.m. They said they haven’t seen their kids in almost a year

The next person in line, Frank Conway, told us he was celebrating his 78th birthday, and a vaccine would be the best gift yet.

When our crew was at the site in Estero, a sign read “no more vaccines.”

“We couldn’t get anywhere near this place,” said John Stone, who has not yet been vaccinated. “There must have been a thousand cars here.”
