Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
The largest vaccination campaign in US history is now underway with an intensive care nurse in New York becoming the first to receive a COVID-19 shot this morning as the death toll from the virus neared 300,000.
Sandra Lindsay received the Pfizer shot at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens just before 9.30am this morning during a livestream with New York Gov Andrew Cuomo.
'It didn't feel any different from taking any other vaccine,' Lindsay said. 'I feel hopeful today, relieved. I feel like healing is coming. I hope this marks the beginning of the end of a very painful time in our history. I want to instill public confidence that the vaccine is safe.'
