A nurse in the New York City intensive care unit became one of the first Americans to be vaccinated against the coronavirus on Monday morning, demonstrating significant progress in the ongoing US fight against the pandemic.
RN Sandra Lindsey received a jab at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens shortly before 9:30 am while New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was watching during the live stream.
According to ABC 7 New York, Lindsey is the hospital’s critical care director and the first person to receive a Covid Shot in the state.
Cuomo and Lindsey applauded and cheered after the vaccination. The governor said she remained stationary while the shot was being administered.
“I didn’t feel any difference from other vaccines,” the doctor told him.
President Donald Trump praised the development on Twitter.
“Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!” He tweeted shortly after Lindsey received the shot.
The first shipment of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine arrived in New York early Monday morning.
