Casey Drug had 72 hours to administer 90 of 100 doses of COVID-19 vaccine it received on Tuesday, and the Chisholm, Minn., pharmacy needed only 24 hours to get all of them injected.

Using a phone tree of customers, the pharmacy had 105 senior citizens slotted for vaccination at a community center on Wednesday and ended up with seven more doses than expected out of the 10-dose vials. Quick calls to seniors on a standby list had those gone in minutes.

"There's so many people who want it," pharmacist Aden Casey said. "They set aside that time to wait for our phone call."
