Mediacorp Star Elizabeth Lee Has Been Administering COVID-19 Vaccines As A Nurse For The Past 8 Months
The NUS nursing graduate, whose two sisters are both doctors, signed up as a volunteer once filming wrapped for 2021 Mediacorp drama Live Your Dreams.
Earlier this week, Sora Ma, 38, wrote about her experience getting her booster shot. Nothing out of the ordinary, right?
But there was one thing different. As it turns out, the nurse administering the jab for Sora happened to be Mediacorp actress Elizabeth Lee, 27.
"Thank you so much for being so professional and this is definitely one of the best [vaccination] experience to me (sic). She is not only a best actress but also a professional nurse,” Sora gushed in her caption.
8days.sg reached out to Elizabeth to find out more.
Turns out Elizabeth, who graduated with an honours degree in nursing from NUS in 2017, has been volunteering as a nurse administering COVID-19 vaccines since June 2020.
As a registered nurse, Elizabeth was one of the many healthcare professionals in Singapore who was contacted by the Ministry of Health to help out due to the manpower crunch.
So she signed up as a volunteer and was posted to a vaccination centre in central Singapore, where she has been administering COVID-19 vaccines for the past eight months.
"Vaccination centres started opening at the start of last year, if I'm not wrong. But at that time, I was filming Live Your Dreams, so I couldn't go down to help at all. After I wrapped [filming], I immediately signed up 'cos I knew that I would have some [free] time,” she said.
Elizabeth played Emma in Live Your Dreams, and fans of KIN will also recognise the actress as Emily Kwan.
