The UK launched a large-scale vaccination campaign against the coronavirus on Tuesday morning. It’s the first Western country to approve such a vaccine.

The first to receive the vaccine was 90-year-old Margaret Keenan. 

“This is the best birthday present I could wish for,” Kennan said. She said that she feels privileged to be the first to receive the vaccine.

She was given the injection at a hospital in Coventry.

Last week, Britain became the first Western country to grant emergency approval for a corona vaccine. 

It chose to approve the vaccine developed by the companies Pfizer and Biontech.
