A critical care nurse has become the first person in the United States to get a shot of the coronavirus vaccine authorized by the Food and Drug Administration.
United States President Donald Trump on Monday congratulated the world after the administration of the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in the country, which has recorded the highest number of cases globally.
Trump took to Twitter and announced, “First Vaccine Administered. Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!.” The US Food and Drug Administration on Friday approved Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use across the country.
After that Trump had tweeted, “People working in the White House should receive the vaccine somewhat later in the program, unless specifically necessary.”
First Vaccine Administered. Congratulations USA! Congratulations WORLD!

New York nurse Sandra Lindsay received the Pfizer-BioNTech shot, live on television, six days after Britain launched the West’s vaccine campaign against Covid-19. In one of the interviews with CNN, she said, “I have no fear. “I trust science. My profession is deeply rooted in science. I trust science. What I don’t trust is getting Covid-19, because I don’t know how it will affect me and the people around me that I could potentially transfer the virus to.”
President Donald Trump also said that he along with the White House staffers would not be among the first in the country to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Trump wrote, “I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time. Thank you!”
Trump earlier in the day wrote, that the vaccines are being shipped and on the way wishing the US and the world to get well.
“Vaccines are shipped and on their way, FIVE YEARS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. Get well USA. Get well WORLD. We love you all,” Trump tweeted earlier in the day.
