England vaccinates William Shakespeare

"Bill" William Shakespeare, 81, receives the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at University Hospital, at the start of the largest ever immunisation programme in the British history, in Coventry, Britain

In England, William Shakespeare from Warwickshire was one of the first people to get the newly approved COVID-19 vaccine outside a clinical trial on Tuesday.

The 81-year-old had the shot at University Hospital Coventry on Tuesday, 20 miles from Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birthplace of his namesake, England’s greatest poet and dramatist.

Shakespeare’s shot encouraged Twitter users, who joked “The Taming of the Flu,” “The Two Gentlemen of Corona.” Some asked if Margaret Keenan was patient 1A, then was Shakespeare “Patient 2B or not 2B?”.
