COVID-19 vaccine: Meet William Shakespeare, the second person in world to get vaccine shot
As Margaret Keenan became the first person to receive a vaccine outside trial conditions, she is trending on all social media platforms but do you know who is the second person to get the shot of COVID-19 vaccine?
The second person who received the vaccine was William Shakespeare! Yes, you read it right. The 81-year-old had the shot at University Hospital Coventry on Tuesday, few miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birthplace of his namesake, England’s greatest author and poet. The William hails from the same county where the famous English poet was born - Warwickshire. The 81-year-old said it was 'groundbreaking' for him to receive a shot.
Earlier on Tuesday, a 90-year-old grandmother scripted history to become the first person to receive the COVID-19 vaccine produced by Pfizer.
Margaret Keenan, who is turning 91 in few days, received her shot at the University Hospital in Coventry in the Midlands, as part of 'Operation Courageous', which is known as UK's biggest ever mass vaccination programme.
The UK is the first country in the world to start use of the COVID vaccine by Pfizer after regulators approved its use last week.
