A black nurse has become the first to receive coronavirus vaccine in the US.
The Queens critical care nurse got the Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot in New York today.
Sandra Lindsay, a critical care nurse at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, was vaccinated on-camera at the Queens hospital as Gov. Andrew Cuomo looked on via livestream.
Applause broke out as Lindsay was jabbed with the potentially life-saving shot.
“It didn’t feel any different from taking any other vaccine,” Lindsay said right after she was given the shot by Northwell Health director of employee health services Michelle Chester.
“I am feeling well. I would like to thank all the front line workers,” said Lindsay. “I feel hopeful. I feel relieved.”
