William Shakespeare Is Second Person To Receive Vaccine As UK Begins Shots

An historical occasion like the rollout of a coronavirus vaccine requires an historic name, right? Enter one William Shakespeare, an 81-year-old British man who on Tuesday became the second person in the world to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech shot outside a clinical trial, according to reports. Shakespeare shares the name of the famous English playwright (who lived during an extended plague) and is from the county of the Bard’s birth, Warwickshire. He can be seen getting vaccinated in the video above. “Ready?” the nurse asked. “是的,” Shakespeare answered. He didn’t appear to flinch as he received the jab in his arm. Shakespeare admitted that he had been “a bit apprehensive about what the side effects could be — but there’s a small chance of that.” Shakespeare, who also goes by Bill, was inoculated at University Hospital Coventry. His name went viral when BBC News health editor Hugh Pym posted his picture.
