A Queens critical care nurse who has been on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic has become the first person in New York – and the first person in the US – to receive Pfizer’s COVID-19.

Sandra Lindsay, a critical care nurse at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, was vaccinated on-camera at the Queens hospital as Gov. Andrew Cuomo looked on via livestream.

Applause broke out as Lindsay was jabbed with the potentially life-saving shot.

“It didn’t feel any different from taking any other vaccine,” Lindsay said right after she was given the shot by Northwell Health director of employee health services Michelle Chester.

“I am feeling well. I would like to thank all the front line workers,” said Lindsay. “I feel hopeful. I feel relieved.”
