First man in the world vaccinated from Covid-19 died

William Shakespeare, the homonym of the famous writer, died in a Coventry hospital from a disease unrelated to Covid-19. He was the first man in the world who received a Covid vaccine.

William Shakespeare, 81, died on May 25 after a long battle against an illness.

On December 8, his picture receiving the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at the University Hospital of Coventry was shared around the world. Yet, less than 6 months later, he passed away, at the same hospital as where he received the vaccine.
