NEW YORK (WABC) -- Eyewitness News continues to celebrate our MTA heroes who have fought hard to help beat the pandemic underground.

In May, the MTA launched a public campaign to get people riding the rails in line for a COVID-19 vaccination.

So far, 11,000 people have received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson in the subways -- thanks to the hard work of MTA workers.

Four people in particular went above and beyond to ensure their stations were ready to help New Yorkers: Cherry-Anne Wiltshire, Sosamma Joseph, Sonsia Wise and Duane Fingall.

Thank you!
