A 90-year-old woman from Northern Ireland has become the first person in the world to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid vaccine outside trial conditions.

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

The UK will be the first country in the world to start using the Pfizer vaccine after regulators approved its use last week.

The UK has already ordered 40 million doses – enough to vaccinate 20 million people, with two shots each.

It is the fastest-ever vaccine to go from concept to reality, taking only 10 months to follow the same developmental steps that normally span a decade. The process was in part made possible by a grant of 195 billion dollars from the US government under the governmental program called “Warp Speed.”
