COVID-19: Margaret Keenan urges people to ‘just do it’ and get the jab – a year after becoming first to get Pfizer vaccine

The grandmother who made history when she got the Pfizer COVID jab exactly a year ago has urged anyone still to get vaccinated to “just do it” and help save lives.

Margaret Keenan, 91, got the jab at Coventry’s University Hospital this time last year and became the first person in the world to get the vaccine outside of a trial.

Speaking today, she said: “Please, please do have the jab because it’ll save your life and the life of your friends and family – and the NHS as well of course…

“Don’t think about it – just go and have it done, you know – just do it. It doesn’t take long to have it done – you can either book in or walk-in centres do it – go and have it done.”

Since her first jab, more than 118 million doses have been administered in the UK.
