The women, both younger than 45, wore bonnets, gloves and glasses to disguise themselves as older than 65, the age cutoff to be prioritized to get the coronavirus vaccine in Florida, according to Raul Pino, the director of the health department in Orange County, where Orlando is located.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who also received his first dose on Sunday, was by her side as she received her jab to applause from the crowd.

Donned in his Australia flag face mask and preparing for his injection, Mr Morrison said: "I'm ready to go, just like the country, ".

"She came here from Europe when she was 13 and she's built an incredible life in this country".

Jane Malysiak made history today when she became the first person in Australia to receive the long-awaited COVID-19 vaccine.

Health authorities this week commenced the administration of COVID-19 vaccines on the general public identified as vulnerable groups in the Western Province.

This historic moment is scheduled to take place at about 10am with the arrival of the first batch of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH604, an Airbus 330-300 aircraft operated by MAB Kargo Sdn Bhd (MASkargo), at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.

Mr Hunt said Australia was "on track" to return to normal once everyone was vaccinated. "I don't know how they escaped for the first time, but they came vaccinated".

"There was a very strong focus on the need for key leaders, not the parliament, not the cabinet, not even the leadership group, but a cross-party group, to provide that confidence", Mr Hunt said.

"We obviously have to see what's the impact in terms of transmission and longevity of antibodies, but the science is good and the hope is high", he said.

"Obviously, we would like to have more vaccines".

"Our job as a health department is to vaccinate as many people as possible", Pino said.

Malaysia is set to take delivery today of the much-awaited vaccine to boost its fight against Covid-19 that has claimed more than 1,000 lives in the country over the past year.

Japan has been also trying to beef up its stocks of special syringes that squeeze an extra sixth shot out of each vaccine vial amid a global shortage of the products.
