Ian McKellen receives Covid-19 vaccine – Deadline

Ian McKellen has become the latest celebrity to receive the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, and the 81-year-old actor will be back for a second dose of the vaccine in three weeks.

Here’s the actor’s Twitter post about getting vaccinated:

He told ITV News, “That’s the real bonus of it all, to look and see what works in this country and what doesn’t work – and it seems to me that the NHS is at the top of the list for institutions that works.”

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 when I was a kid I had good medical treatment when needed – what a great idea, ”he continued.

Yesterday, British TV stars Prue Leith and Michael Whitehall were among the first to receive the vaccine.
