NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – A South Florida flower shop owner made a touching gesture to brighten the day of people waiting to receive their COVID-19 vaccine doses.
Kellie Cantafio, who owns Espri Miami, surprised patients at a vaccination site in Northwest Miami-Dade on Sunday with colorful bouquets.
“Everyone seems excited, you know, it’s not expected, you know, they’re coming here to get a shot and then they get a bunch of flowers,” she said. “It’s a great thing.”
“Very happy with the first gift of Valentine’s Day,” said a patient.
The business owner said she received a late shipment of flowers on Valentine’s Day weekend, and she was determined not to let them go to waste.
“Thought it would be a good idea to bring a little bit of joy to everybody,” Cantafio said. “Everybody’s going through a tough time. Hand them some flowers, brighten their day, make them happy.”
Cantafio was compelled to hand out the flowers for free.
“This is very surprise for me,” said a patient. “I come here only to take my immunization.”
