Lesson from a 107-year-old man who is now fully vaccinated

Sky Link TV, a Chinese television station in San Francisco, produced a video of wheelchair bound Shek-Woon Ng getting his second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine in June 2021. Ng is 107 years old and has been homebound in recent years. He retired at the age of 99 from his acupuncture practice located on Stockton Street in Chinatown.

His mom, Fung Chow Ng, is 80 years old. “I feel relieved now,” she said on camera after her husband received his vaccine jab.
