Which country in the world is the first to vaccinate against COVID-19?

On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, the United Kingdom became the first country in the world to start mass vaccinations of its citizens against COVID-19. The first to receive the vaccine are healthcare workers, care home staff, and individuals over 80 years old. These individuals will be the first to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

According to The New York Times, today at exactly 6:31 am, the first patient, 90-year-old Margaret Kennan, received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. She has become the first person in the world to be officially vaccinated against the disease that has caused over 1.5 million deaths worldwide to date.

We hope that the vaccine will reach all other countries as soon as possible and contribute to bringing an end to the nearly year-long pandemic.
