Greta Thunberg, a teen climate and environmental activist from Sweden, gained recognition across the world after her emotional speeches at the UN and one-person Friday climate strikes.
Climate activist Greta Thunberg took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that she has received her first coronavirus vaccine shot.
"I am extremely grateful and privileged to be able to live in a part of the world where I can already get vaccinated. The vaccine distribution around the world is extremely unequal", she tweeted, attaching a photo of herself in a face mask and with a post-vaccine bandage.
She pondered the world's vaccine distribution, referring to New York Times statistics that say that "84 percent of shots that have gone into arms worldwide have been administered in high- and upper-middle-income countries. Only 0.3 percent of doses have been administered in low-income countries."
"No one is safe until everyone is safe", Thunberg finalized her tweet series. "But when you get offered a vaccine, don’t hesitate. It saves lives."
​In spring 2020, Thunberg said she and her father experienced symptoms similar to those of COVID-19 after she returned from a trip to Central Europe. At the time, she said that she had immediately self-quarantined.
