Filipina nurse May Parsons gave the first-ever Coronavirus vaccine shot to a 90-years old UK woman on December 8, 2020. She said it was a historic day, a light at the end of the tunnel.
The approved vaccine by Pfizer-BioNTech that hopes to stop COVID from wreaking havoc was administered at a hospital in Coventry, United Kingdom. According to the National Health Services, Margaret Keenan was the first person in the world to get the vaccine.
