Britain is the first Western country to flinch inoculating its general population. The step has been hailed as a pivotal crunch in defeating the coronavirus. She received the shot from a Philippian nurse in front of a photographer and TV crew. Keenan’s momentous words are always remembered,
“I feel so privileged to be the first person vaccinated against COVID-19. It’s the best early birthday present I could wish for because it means I can finally look forward to spending time with my family and friends in the New Year after being on my own for most of the year.”
According to Sources,
“Footage displayed her wearing a light blue mask, a grey cardigan with a blue t-shirt with a penguin in snow. The message says “Merry Christmas” as she received the shot in her left arm from nurse May Parsons.”
Britain is the worst-hit European country from COVID-19, with over 61,000 deaths. Prime Minister Boris Johnson anticipates turning the wind off by rolling out the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine before the United States or European Union. The mass inoculation will trigger hope to heal humanity badly crumbled by the disease.
Johnson said on Twitter
“Thank you to our NHS, to all of the scientists who worked so hard to develop this vaccine, to all the volunteers – and to everyone who has been following the rules to protect others.”
British Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Stephen Powis, medical director for NHS England, said
“It is very emotional watching the vaccine program rollout.”
Meanwhile, Pakistan is also in talks with pharmaceutical companies for access to COVID-19 vaccines. Health Ministry has proposed Prime Minister Imran Khan to set aside $100 million to procure doses.
