A woman from Somerset has become one of the oldest people in the UK to receive a Covid-19 vaccine.
106-year-old Pat Aldridge was among the residents at Nynehead Court care home, which is near Wellington in Somerset, to receive her first dose of the vaccine on 18 January.
The centenarian, who is also one of the oldest people in the UK to catch and recover from the virus, told staff she “will take anything they’ve got” to protect herself.
‘Light at the end of the tunnel’
Deputy manager Deb Sparks told ITV News West Country it was “emotional” seeing Pat and the other residents get vaccinated.
“It was really quite emotional seeing all of them getting it,” she said. “All of the residents were very keen to get the vaccine.
“Pat said she would have taken anything we had.
At 106-years-old, Pat is believed to be one of the oldest people in the country to receive a vaccine for coronavirus.
Another 106-year-old woman, called Olive, was given the vaccine at a GP surgery near York earlier this month.
