Sandra Lindsay, a critical care nurse in the New York City borough of Queens, was the first person in the United States to receive Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccination as it rolled out across the country today.
The NY Post reports: “Applause broke out as Lindsay was jabbed with the potentially life-saving shot. ‘It didn’t feel any different from taking any other vaccine,’ Lindsay said right after she was given the shot by Northwell Health director of employee health services Michelle Chester. ‘I am feeling well. I would like to thank all the front line workers,’ said Lindsay. ‘I feel hopeful. I feel relieved.'”
