Margaret Keenan: T-shirt gives charity a boost

A charity t-shirt worn by the first person to be given the Pfizer Covid vaccine has almost sold out as sales tripled.

Pictures of Margaret Keenan, 90, receiving the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine on Tuesday in Coventry were viewed online and on TV around the world.

News of the first vaccination trended on social media, with many Twitter users praising her festive t-shirt.

Sales of the blue top raises money to buy presents for patients on the wards.

Twitter user Christopher Peacock said Ms Keenan had become “the most famous woman in the world”.

Jo O’Sullivan, the director of University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire Charity said: “We are only a small charity, but we have seen sales of the t-shirt triple and have had to order more stock.”
