Elle Taylor, 24, from Ammanford in Wales is the first person to receive the Moderna vaccine in the UK, APA reports citing BBC.
She is an unpaid carer for her 82-year-old grandmother and has received the jab from staff nurse Laura French at West Wales General Hospital's outpatients department.
"I'm very excited and very happy," she says. "I'm an unpaid carer for my grandmother so it is very important to me that I get it, so I can care for her properly and safely.
"My grandmother has had her first dose and she is going for her second dose on Saturday."
