William Shakespeare among the first to be vaccinated
William Shakespeare of Warwickshire, England, was one of the first people to be vaccinated in Britain today with the highly approved Pfizer / BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for out-of-clinical trials.
The 81-year-old was vaccinated today at Coventry University Hospital, which is located 32 kilometers away from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of his namesake, the greatest playwright and poet in England.
Shakespeare’s vaccination has inspired many Twitter users to joke about “The Flu Day” from the author’s well-known comedy “The Strigla Day”.
Some even wondered: if Margaret Keenan, a 90-year-old grandmother, was patient 1A vaccinated against COVID-19 in Britain, then Shakespeare was patient “2B or not 2B?”, From Hamlet’s famous monologue “To be or not to be” (To live or not to live).
