What happened:

According to the BBC, Margaret Keenan, a 90-year-old woman hailing from Northern Ireland, has become the first person to receive a full dose of the new Pfizer/BionTech Covid-19 vaccine outside of ongoing trials. This marks the start of UK’s mass vaccination programme.

As a worldwide immunization program kicks off, the health authorities in the UK have independently reviewed and vigorously tested the vaccines as well and hope the immunisation program gains momentum as more vaccines win approval.

Margaret Keenan said she felt ” so privileged “, to receive the vaccine shot at the University Hospital Coventry.
