Oldest Woman Received First COVID-19 Vaccine Jab
COVID-19 VACCINE – A 124-year-old Indian woman who claims to be the oldest woman in the world, received her for COVID-19 vaccine shot.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, countries gain hope as more COVID-19 vaccines become available to the public. However, fear looms as the vaccines had reports of deaths following jabs, especially for the elderly.
Although the percentages of the occurring is low, it’s enough to dissuade others from getting vaccinated. But, Rehtee Begum, from Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, even at 124-years-old, decided to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
But, according to an article from LadBible, authorities have declined to provide proof of her age. Meanwhile, it was the authorities themselves who posted the picture of Begum receiving her first shot.
On the other hand, local media outlet, NDTV, said her age was based on a ration card which belonged to her son. In the card, you’d see that her age was 124-years-old. If that were true, this would make Rehtee the oldest individual vaccinated against COVID-19.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, health officials warned that the virus is more deadly on the elderly. But, there are cases were people over a hundred years old survived the infection and was even asymptomatic.
Transversely, there had been cases of the virus infecting younger individuals who had severe cases of the virus. This goes to show that the virus could infect anybody.
