The second person and the first man in the world who received the coronavirus jab, William Shakespeare, has died.
Do you really think that we’ll believe that his real name was William Shakespeare? Probably the media outlet shared it because they took the info from the BBC.
Also, the media managed to highlight that even though he died, the coronavirus shot wasn’t the cause!
BBK UK covered this story.
The second person in the world to get the Pfizer-BioNTech jab has died of an unrelated illness.
Bill Shakespeare, 81, received his first Covid vaccine in December at University Hospital Coventry shortly after 91-year-old Margaret Keenan.
Coventry councilor Jayne Innes, a friend of Mr. Shakespeare, said he had died on Thursday and added the “best tribute to Bill is to have the jab.”
Mr. Shakespeare had worked at Rolls Royce and was a parish councilor.
The 81-year-old, who had served his local community in Allesley for more than three decades and was an inpatient on the hospital’s frailty ward at the time of his first jab, said it had been “wonderful.”
Ms. Innes wrote in a post on Facebook: “Bill will be remembered for many things, including a taste for mischief.”
She said he had always been proud to be from Coventry and had served as a governor at Allesley Primary and Coundon Court schools.
Mr. Shakespeare leaves his wife Joy, their two adult sons, and grandchildren.
West Midlands Labour group said on Twitter: “Bill made global headlines as [the first] man to have Covid vaccine.
“His decades of service to the party were recently recognized by Keir Starmer.
Rest In Peace, Bill!
