A New York nurse named Sandra Lindsay has been the first person to receive the highly anticipated COVID-19 vaccine.

But it seems the news has solicited some serious mixed reactions…

The update that we’ve been waiting months for is finally here…

A vaccine for the deadly coronavirus has finally been issued to a woman in New York.

And it’s ready to distribute.

But what’s even more exciting is the promised effectiveness of the new vaccine.

The coronavirus pandemic took the entire planet hostage back in March and things have been diabolical, to say the least.

And right now, there are currently 72,859,198 cases of the virus.

And even more alarmingly so, the United States of America is the worst affected country in the world – with more than 300,000 deaths alone.

If certain individuals listened to the experts and practiced social distancing and mask-wearing!

And Donald Trump’s eagerness to tone down the virus didn’t at all go to plan.

He continued to play it down and insist that we can simply “live with the virus.”

And it got us all wondering… What’s the progress with the much-needed vaccine?

But, to begin with, they didn’t have much luck.

However, today seems to finally be the day that brings us some good news.

American multinational pharmaceutical corporation, Pfizer and German biotechnology company, BioNTech have been working on a coronavirus vaccine for the last few months.

Well, they’re looking so good that some countries have started distributing the COVID vaccine out to their citizens – including today’s first vaccine in the US.

“I hope this marks the beginning of the end of a very painful time in our history,” she shared.

“I want to instill public confidence that the vaccine is safe, we’re in a pandemic and so we all need to do our part to put an end to the pandemic and not give up so soon.”

“So I encourage everyone to take the vaccine. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but we still need to wear our masks and social-distance.”

Let’s just hope this vaccine is as effective as we’re hoping. Keep scrolling to see how one nurse was fired after she bragged about breaking COVID rules…
