A 90-year old woman, Margaret Keenan became the first person to receive a Covid-19 vaccine shot in the United Kingdom.
The vaccine shot was that of the vaccine developed by pharma major Pfizer and BioNTech. With this, UK became the first major country to vaccinate its population against the novel coronavirus.
At least 800,000 vaccine shots are expected to be given in the coming 2 weeks. And the country aims at vaccinating 4 million by the end of this month.
Magaret Keenan, who turns 91 years old next week, said that this is the ‘best early birthday present.’
