X-Men star Sir Ian McKellen is feeling elated and the reason is the COVID-19 vaccine. The 81-year-old received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at Queen Mary University Hospital in London.
“It’s a very special day, I feel elated!” said the Lord of the Rings star Wednesday 16th December. According to DailyMail, “The 81-year-old British veteran actor is one of the top vaccine-eligible groups and joins the thousands of over 80s, NHS staff and nursing home staff who have been called by the NHS to attend their local primary care office or vaccination center to be treated. “
He further told DailyMail: “Anyone who has lived for as long as I have is alive because they have had previous vaccinations. The acceptance from the older generation will be 100 percent – it should be – because you are having it not just for yourself. but for the people you are close to – you are doing your part for society. Sure, it’s painless … it’s convenient, getting in touch and meeting with the NHS staff and thanking them for how hard it was to work is a plus. I would hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I feel very lucky to have had the vaccine. “
“It’s a very special day, I feel elated. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I feel very lucky to have received the vaccine. “
