Plaintext :
This week marks a historic turning point in the battle with COVID as some of the state’s first vaccines were administered to frontline. In Britain, news that the country had become the first to start administering a fully tested coronavirus vaccine was met with hope, excitement — and some trepidation. This is another step closer to the beginning of the end of the global pandemic.
