Ian McKellen Receives Covid-19 Vaccine

ITV News

Ian McKellen has become the latest celebrity to receive the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, with the 81-year-old actor scheduled to be back for a second dose of the vaccine in three weeks.

Here’s the actor’s Twitter post about getting inoculated:

Speaking to ITV News, he said, “That’s the real bonus of all this, to watch and see what works in this country and what doesn’t work – and it seems to me the NHS is right at the top of the list for institutions that do work.”

“Of course, I know I wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for the NHS. I’m a little bit older than the NHS but when I was a kid, having good medical treatment available when it was needed – what a wonderful notion,” he continued.

Yesterday, UK TV stars Prue Leith and Michael Whitehall were among the first to receive the vaccine.
