Vaccine delays leave grocery workers feeling expendable

Bodega owner Frank Marte, left, serves a customer as his cat Ramon, lower left, sits beneath a display case, Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2021, in the Bronx borough of New York. Marte, who heads up the Bodega and Small Business Group, which represents bodegas in New York, said he’s been lobbying local officials to set aside COVID-19 vaccine appointments for bodega workers, many of whom are unaware they are eligible. He hopes the recent opening of a large vaccination site at Yankee stadium will make access easier for people like him.
