A 108-year-old woman who lived through the Spanish flu pandemic is among the first residents at a care home in Carmarthenshire to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. Mary Keir was 1 of 37 people to receive their first dose of the Pfizer-Biontech jab. She said she felt “much safer and happier” having done so. Covid-19 is the second pandemic she has lived through – she was 4 at the onset of the 1916 Spanish Flu outbreak.
