Well I hope some of you are going to fire up google to let us know if this is the first time this has happened?!

Happy 110th birthday to Amy Hawkins, the oldest person living in Wales! :party:

All 3 countries of Great Britain now have at least one person aged 110+. Been a few years since that last happened.

Gertrude Annie Kingston, who has lived through two World Wars and the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, has received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccination at the age of 111 years and 357 days.  Mrs Kingston is the second oldest living person in the UK after Sarah Lilian Priest, who turned 112 in November last year.  Mrs Priest, who lives at York House care home in Swanage, Dorset, had the vaccine on Tuesday.

Simply incredible ! I sometimes wish Kane would die, so as Lucille Randon could be the oldest person alive and the title could come back to France, for the 2nd time after Jeanne Calment

How so she had no symptoms so is unlikely to be any weaker from it.

Soeur Andrée, Lucille Randon is turning 117 today just after revealing she had covid in January : sounds great and healthy in this French article which basically says that she's delighted to be 117, she acknowledges that she had covid but wasn't too scared about it because "at 117, she has lived a beautiful life". I wish her some other birthdays in such a same good health !

Tanaka and Randon seem to be an especially strong duo at the top.

Could be a Sarah Knauss / Jeanne Calment situation.

They are, expecially Tanaka. Dos Santos has been in utter failing health for decades, including terminal cancer (that was a few years ago, though...). She is the frailest of them all. Bot is not able to speak or walk reportedly, though she "does not take medication" (which is a usual glorification of random old geezers). Ford is another on the frail side, as she has advanced dementia. Juniewicz is a sort of medical miracle as she survived an undisclosed, very dangerous illness at 113. And received hip surgery before. Don't know about the others.

This is a pretty weird one, there isn't nearly anything about her known.
