"Had my vaccine and I'm so grateful.
"Thank you for everything you do."
An image, posted to the Altrincham Health Alliance's Twitter page, saw the chuffed actress beaming under her mask as she was given the jab.
Wearing a blue and white stripe shirt and black face covering, she posed alongside an NHS nurse preparing to administer the coronavirus vaccine.
The image caption added a quote from Sally, in which she said: "It's the best day I've had for ages… a huge thank you to everyone."
The account also added former Manchester United and England captain Bryan Robson said he was "delighted" to be one of the 800 people receiving their jab that day.
Sally's co-star Sally Ann Matthews, who plays Jenny Bradley, was quick to join in her celebrations, and added: "Woo hoo!! x"
Meanwhile other fans were just as delighted she had been granted her first jab towards protection.
The Sun revealed last week that those over 65 would be getting their letters from this week, as they are the next priority group.
At the time, the PM tweeted: "Today we start the next phase of our vaccination programme, with people aged 65-69 and the clinically vulnerable now being offered the jab.
"If you are over 70 and haven't had your first jab yet, speak to your GP, book a slot online, or call 119."
And at the same time the second jabs for those who have got their first vaccines will also take place.
Yet those at-risk, or with pre-existing health conditions, could be invited for their vaccine beforehand.
The Manchester-based soap star, who has been a Corrie favourite since 1986, is one of a number of TV stars to be granted their jab early, with others including chef Nigella Lawson, 61, revealing she has been invited for her appointment.
This Morning host Ruth Langsford also took to social media last week to celebrate getting the jab.
ITV presenter Ruth happily announced she was "one step closer" to seeing her mum after having her first jab.
Ruth hasn't cuddled her mum – who lives in a care home – since March last year.
She broke down in tears on Loose Women this month as she shared her heartache at not being able to visit her.
