Ian McKellen is the most famous recipient of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.
Here is the actor’s Twitter post about getting in:
I feel very fortunate to have been vaccinated. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. https://t.co/gBLRR0OeJc

Speaking to ITV News, he said, “The real benefit of all this is to watch and see what works in this country and what doesn’t – and it seems to me that the NHS is right at the top of the list for centers that work. ”
“Of course, I know I wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for the NHS. I’m a little older than the NHS but as a child, there was good medical treatment available when needed – that’s a good idea, ”he continued.
McKellen, 81, will be back for a second dose of the vaccine in three weeks.
Yesterday, UK TV stars Prue Leith and Michael Whitehall were among the first to receive the vaccine.
