Larry Madowo, a Kenyan journalist working for the BBC as the North America correspondent has also received a COVID-19 vaccine. Larry shared the good news with his twitter followers by writing, "I got the first shot of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday in DC and I'm feeling fine. As everyone knows, the vaccine doesn't work if you don't take a picture." The tweet was then followed by a photo of Larry being injected with the Pfizer vaccine.
