Photos of the Week – December 12, 2020

This week COVID-19 vaccinations began in Great Britain.  Margaret Keenan, 90, became the first person to receive the new vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech at Guy’s Hospital in London.  These are just a handful of photos taken during this unprecedented event.

The first man to receive a vaccine in the UK was an Englishman named William Shakespeare.
