A 90-year-old British woman has become the first person to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid 19 vaccine. She received the jab at 06:31 GMT at University Hospital in Coventry, administered by matron May Parsons. 

As part of a nationwide rollout program, over 80s and some health and care staff will be vaccinated in the days to come. The UK is the first country in the world to start using the vaccine after the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) granted emergency use approval last week to the vaccine.
