By Alicia Powe


The New York City nurse who received the first FDA-approved experimental mRNA COVID injection is slated to receive the Presidential Medial of Freedom from Joe Biden this week, the White House announced.

Following emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine, Queens-based critical care nurse Sandra Lindsay, became the first person to be fully “vaccinated.” She received the first dose of Pfizer’s BioNTech on Dec. 14 2020 and a second dose on Jan. 4, 2021.

Lindsay will receive the nation’s highest civilian honor along with actor Denzel Washington, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, the late GOP Sen. John McCain and Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple at a White House ceremony on July 7.
