London: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip will be among the first to receive the COVID-19 vaccine developed and Pfizer-BioNTech.

The United Kingdom was the first country in the world to grant the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine emergency use authorization. Its roll-out plan states that elderly care home residents and their carers, healthcare workers, and those aged 80 and above will be the first to get the vaccine shots apart from frontline health and care staff.

According to reports, both the 94-year-old and 99-year-old  will be in line to receive the mRNA-based coronavirus vaccine in the coming weeks. Which means, the Queen and Prince Philip will not receive any preferential treatment vis-à-vis the vaccine roll-out.

On December 2, the UK approved the emergency use of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine and placed a pre-order for 4 crore doses. The first batch of eight lakh doses is expected to arrive in the UK next week in temperature-controlled thermal shippers.
