The United Kingdom has administered its first dose of coronavirus vaccine with a British grandmother making history by becoming the first person to receive the vaccine in the country.

The 90-year-old British grandmother, Margaret Keenan became the first person to receive the Covid-19 vaccine outside of clinical trials in the United Kingdom.

She received the first two doses at the University Hospital in Coventry after the vaccine was approved by the country.

This also means the United Kingdom is the first country in the West to administer the vaccine to its citizens.

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was approved by UK authorities last week and is set to be given to over 40 million Britons in a programmed roll-out.
