Sir Ian McKellen, the ‘’Lord of The Rings’’ star and two times Oscar Awards nominee, received his first dose of the Covid-19 Vaccine at Queen Mary University Hospital In London on December 16.
The 81-year-old famous actor had a lot to say about the vaccination. ’’I feel very lucky and optimistic to had the vaccine.’’ The star went ahead to say that he feels euphoric after receiving the first dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine. ‘’It’s a very special day, I feel some bit of euphoric.’’ He was quoted in an NHF post, which he further retweeted.
At the end of his interview, Ian urged anyone who was offered the vaccine to take it. ‘’ I would encourage everyone to do the most sensible thing, no for themselves but everyone. This is because if you are free from the virus, it helps everyone else.’’
Earlier this month, the UK became the first Western nation to authorize a Coronavirus vaccine. According to the NHS (National Health Service), McKellen formed the first group eligible for the vaccine. NHS has rolled out the vaccination to over 80 years of age, care home residents, and healthcare workers.
