EN [ENA] Covid, the UK starts coronavirus vaccinations today. This morning the campaign began with the administration of the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine. 90-year-old Margaret Keenan was the first vaccinated. Ms. Keenan will receive the second dose in 3 weeks.

Margaret Keenan, 90, is the first UK citizen to receive the coronavirus vaccine. The vaccination campaign in the country began this morning, with the administration of the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine. Keenan was vaccinated at 6.45am in Coventry, where what Health Secretary Matt Hancock called V-Day opened. Mrs Keenan, originally from Enniskillen in Northern Ireland, will receive the second dose in 3 weeks. A former jewelry store clerk, the UK's first vaccinee is about to turn 91 next week. He has lived in isolation most of the year and now plans to spend Christmas in a small family 'bubble'. Nurse May Parsons gave the injection. "I can't thank May and the NHS staff enough for taking great care of me.

William Shakespeare is the first man to receive the coronavirus vaccine in Britain. In Coventry, one of the cities where the vaccination campaign started, the first doses were administered. The first ever went to Margaret Keenan, a 90-year-old lady. The second in line was William 'Bill' Shakespeare, namesake of the poet and playwright and like him a native of Warwickshire. Shakespeare, like all people who have been vaccinated today, will receive the second dose in 3 weeks to get the maximum protection available against the virus.
