Veteran actor Sir Ian McKellen, who has worked in films like X-Men and Lord of the Rings, is among the first actors to have received the Covid-19 vaccine in the UK
The 81-year-old actor was vaccinated for the disease by Pfizer in the first week of the UK’s vaccination programme at the Arts Research Centre.
An excited McKellen told the Daily Mail that he 'feels lucky' to have gotten the vaccination. He said it’s a very special day and he feels euphoric. The actor further advised everyone to get the vaccine as it is painless and quite convenient.
