After getting a shot of the COVID-19 vaccine she described the experience as “a good touch” as “it didn’t feel any different than taking any other vaccine”.
In an interview, the nurse told CNN that she is feeling she has no fear and feels “great”.

The quickly organized media conference, which took place only a few hours after the vaccinations arrived in New York City at dawn. The entire event was televised live on CNN and other social media sites.
Ms. Lindsay also mentioned her concerns over getting infected with coronavirus as she said, “I trust the science. My profession is deeply rooted in science. I trust science. What I don’t trust is getting Covid-19, because I don’t know how it will affect me and the people around me that I could potentially transfer the virus to.”
This Coronavirus shot manifests a defining moment in history and serves as a symbol of scientific speed and accuracy.
The recipient of the vaccine also mentioned that she wants to “inspire” people and encourage them to get vaccinated.
