Margaret Keenan, who became the world’s first patient to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine outside a clinical trial, has received her second jab.
The 91-year-old grandmother was given the booster injection at Coventry’s University Hospital on Tuesday, three weeks after making history with the first one on 8 December.
Some 616,933 people in the UK had the coronavirus jab between that day and 20 December, according to the most recent Department of Health figures published last week.
But Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Christmas Eve that almost 800,000 people had been given their first dose of the two-stage vaccine.
The initial jabs were given in hospitals, but the rollout has since widened to GP-led sites and care homes.
