Margaret Keenan, now 91, from Coventry, was given a Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine at University Hospital on 8 December 2020.
She said she was happy her getting the jab had inspired others to do the same.
"Even young people have spoken to me and it makes me feel good.".
More than 51 million first doses of vaccine have been given in the UK, along with over 46 million second doses and 20 million extra doses.
In September Mrs Keenan, known as Maggie, was given her booster vaccine alongside Matron May Parsons, who manages Covid wards in the trust and administered her first jab.
She said: "It felt great, honestly, I could not believe that things went so well, afterwards.
She said she would advise anyone to get the jab: "Don't think about it.
Speaking about unvaccinated young people and pregnant women, Ms Parsons said: "Those are the people I would like to reach out to and find out the reasons why they are not having it, because they're gambling with their lives.
"The amount of people we have seen that are young and pregnant, and aren't vaccinated, dying for the virus is just not right.".
She added: "The respiratory wards haven't had any let up in terms of Covid numbers it's always been Covid in my ward and it's even more difficult now."?
