As the COVID-19 vaccine starts to slowly but surely roll out, Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actor Sir Ian McKellen recently received the shot in the UK and praised medical professionals at this time.
I feel very lucky to have had the vaccine. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. https://t.co/gBLRR0OeJc

“It’s a very special day, I feel euphoric,” McKellen said on this personal Twitter account. “I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. I feel very lucky to have had the vaccine.”
The X-Men and Lord of The Rings actor seemed to beam with joy after the first inoculation and wanted to celebrate with the medical staff. “Next time I come, well no, six days after I next come, I’m going to give them all a big hug. Is that allowed? I don’t know,” he told ITV.
