Earl Stewart Toyota staff members have been on an aggressive hunt for inventory, but they weren't seeking RAV4s or Camrys.
The dealership in North Palm Beach, Fla., formed a team of six employees in January to find available doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for employees age 65 and up. Now 10 people monitor the local vaccine scheduling website three days a week.
The store's COVID Rescue Team reached a milestone this month when all 24 of the store's at-risk or older employees got their shots.
Dealer principal Earl Stewart, 80, has received both doses of the vaccine. Employees aggressively monitored the online appointment system for local grocery chain Publix to corner slots, logging in simultaneously 15 minutes before the system went live.
