To get front line workers that work to save the lives of COVID-19 patients to show their support.
A team of respiratory therapists from the hospital that recorded the first COVID-19 death in the United States, EvergreenHealth Medical Center, outside of Seattle, WA, took pictures holding signs calling for a free vaccine.

Reflections from Eric Olson
What was the process/journey of creating this work?
While thinking about ways to create images of people showing their support of the Free the Vaccine campaign, a respiratory therapist friend (the people who put critical patients on respirators) told me about his recent short stories reflecting on the experience of working at the first hospital overwhelmed with COVID-19 hospitalizations and with the first recorded COVID-19 death in the United States. I later reached out to him to see if he and his colleagues would do a photoshoot and they were happy to help.
