The 90-year-old, Margaret Keenan, is the first person to receive the Pfizer

vaccine and many more will join her this month. The vaccine is said to be 95% effective against COVID-19 by the FDA and requires two doses weeks apart to be effective. Currently, it is being rolled out in the U.K. but is limited to four million people this month.

The vaccine has not been authorized in the U.S. yet, so we will have to wait.
