First COVID-19 Vaccine Vial Heads to Smithsonian


The first vial used to vaccinate Americans against the coronavirus will now have a permanent home at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. The first COVID-19 vaccine was administered to ICU nurse Sandra Lindsay on December 14, 2020, in New York. Her vaccination record card, scrubs, and hospital ID badge were also donated. The museum's director said, "These now historic artifacts document not only this remarkable scientific progress but represent the hope offered to millions living through the cascading crisis brought on by COVID-19."
