A New York nurse became the first person to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in the United States, the country most bereaved in the world by the coronavirus, on Monday.

The intensive care nurse, Sandra Lindsay, was vaccinated in front of the cameras at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, a large hospital in the district of Queens.

Double assisting with her vaccination, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo congratulated her. “I hope this will give you and the caregivers who work on this every day a sense of security and enhanced competence,” he said.

“It will be months before the vaccine reaches critical mass”

She was smiling, saying after being stung in the arm: “I feel very good. I did not feel any difference with the other vaccines ”.

This injection marks the start of a massive vaccination campaign across the country where the epidemic is raging, with daily deaths often close to 2,500 deaths and more than 16 million cases recorded.

“It will be months before the vaccine reaches critical mass,” said the governor. “So it’s light at the end of the tunnel, but the tunnel is long,” he added, calling on Americans to continue to respect sanitary guidelines during the holiday season.
