Margaret Keenan has become the first person in the United Kingdom to receive the coronavirus vaccine.
The former shop clerk, who will celebrate her 91st birthday next week, was given the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at 6:31 a.m. local time on Tuesday, at University Hospital Coventry in England.
One photo from Keenan's visit shows her receiving the shot, while a second sees her being pushed in a wheelchair down a hospital hallway while medical staff applauds her. Keenan wore a blue face mask for the occasion, as well as a sweet blue shirt that read "Merry Christmas" and featured a penguin in a Santa hat.
"I feel so privileged to be the first person vaccinated against COVID-19," she said, according to the Associated Press. "It's the best early birthday present I could wish for because it means I can finally look forward to spending time with my family and friends in the New Year after being on my own for most of the year."
