May Parsons administers the first Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer
Nurses Overseas are a Pride of Filipinos
May Parsons administers the first Covid-19 vaccine with 95% efficacy to 90-year-old Margaret Keenan. She’s the first patient in the world to receive it. The clinical trial tests for this vaccine ends last November. The UK became the first country to approve it for immediate use.
Happy to be a Part of History
“I’m just glad that I’m able to play a part in this historic day. The last few months have been tough for all of us working in the NHS, but now it feels like there is light at the end of the tunnel,” Parsons said.
Pfizer Trust Filipinos
In the Philippines, many Filipinos are skeptical about taking vaccines. This is due to the many deaths after the dengue vaccine, Dengvaxia was given to the poor. Pfizer’s example just boosts not only the Filipino pride but also confidence in its products. Regardless of any past misfortunes. Surviving Covid-19 today is more crucial.
