These preliminary vaccinations were administered to frontline healthcare workers on Monday (Dec. 14). These vaccinations were part of an effort to help frontline workers protect themselves and the public from the risk of contracting COVID-19, the deadly disease caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
A Black female registered nurse at New York’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center is one of the first people in the state to receive the vaccine, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says. The nurse’s name is Sandra Lindsay (pictured).
“I would like to thank all the frontline workers, all my colleagues who’ve been doing a yeoman’s job to fight this pandemic all over the world. I feel hopeful today, relieved. I feel like healing is coming. I hope this marks the beginning of the end of a very painful time in our history,” Lindsay said during a livestream with Gov. Cuomo after receiving her shot.
