Set includes: a diluent vial (LOT 6022720, EXP 09/02); an empty vaccine vial (LOT EL0142) with white and red adhesive sticker with handwritten date 1/4/21; and a colorless plastic B-D syringe with black markings, in plastic and paper packaging (packaging is open).
On December 14, 2020, Sandra Lindsay, RN, director of nursing for critical care at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, New York, became the first person in the United States to receive the FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine. Following this event, Northwell Health donated material to the Smithsonian connected to the initial vaccination and vaccine roll-out. The empty vial from Lindsay's first dose of vaccine (2021.0008.0x) and this set of materials from her second dose, administered on January 4, 2022, were included in this donation. Lindsay’s scrubs and socks (see also 2021.0008.05.1 and 2021.0008.05.2), ID badge (see 2021.0008.03), and vaccination record card (see 2021.0008.04) were also included in the donation.
