First COVID Vaccine Administered

A critical care nurse in New York received first dose.

As the vaccine rollout begins, the first coronavirus vaccination in New York State was administered Monday to an intensive care unit nurse.

States across the nation have begun vaccinations Monday, and it is possible that the nurse was the first person to receive the vaccination in the U.S., outside of those who had them in clinical trials.

Images of her receiving the inoculation were broadcast on live television. She said, “It didn’t feel any different from taking any other vaccine.”

President Trump quickly tweeted, “First Vaccine Administered. Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!”

Officials believe about 20 million people could be vaccinated in December, beginning with health care workers and individuals in nursing homes.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For health care workers who will be receiving—and those administering—the COVID vaccine.
  • That the vaccinations would prove to be the soon ending of the coronavirus pandemic.
