The prime minister has received his first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine and has urged the public to do the same, saying he “did not feel a thing”.
Boris Johnson was given the vaccine at St Thomas’ Hospital in central London, where he was treated for Covid-19 during the first wave of the pandemic.
After being vaccinated, the PM said: “I cannot recommend it too highly”.
It comes as several European countries said they would resume using the jab.
Leaving hospital, Mr Johnson told reporters: “I literally did not feel a thing. It was very good, very quick – I cannot recommend it too highly.
“Everybody, when you do get your notification to go for a jab, please go and get it, it is the best thing for you, best thing for your family and for everyone else.”
