A 90-year-old UK woman becomes the first in the world to receive a COVID-19 vaccine outside of trial. Margaret Keenan, 90, from Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, became the first person in the world to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine outside of a clinical trial, marking the start of UK’s mass vaccination programme.

Maggie, who will turn 91 next week, said, “I feel so privileged. It’s the best early birthday present I could wish for because 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.”
