Grandmother, 90, becomes first person to get COVID-19 vaccine Dec 09, 2020 0 345 12345 Nurses cheered on Tuesday as a 90-year-old grandmother in Britain became the first person in the Western world to receive an approved vaccine against COVID-19. Margaret Keenan, who turns 91 next week, called the jab she received at a hospital in Coventry, central England, “the best early birthday present”. “My advice to anyone offered the vaccine is to take it. If I can have it at 90 then you can have it too,” said the former jewellery shop worker who has two children and four grandchildren. “I feel so privileged to be the first person vaccinated against COVID-19.” Regulators in Britain became the first to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for general use last week.
