Vaccinated Grandparents Surprise Grandson After Eight Months Apart in Louisiana

A boy was paid a surprise visit by his recently vaccinated grandparents, who he hadn’t seen for eight months, in Slidell, Louisiana.

Mother Niki Dowell arranged the surprise for her son, Patrick, after her parents got the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccine on March 2, she told Storyful.

The elderly pair had moved to Florida eight months before this reunion.
