COVID-19: Prince William receives first dose of coronavirus vaccine | UK News

Prince William received his first dose of a coronavirus vaccine and thanked those involved in the UK deployment “for everything you have done and continue to do”.

The Duke of Cambridge shared an image on Twitter this morning of when he received the blow yesterday.

William, who is 38 and the second to the throne, received his first dose after the UK-wide rollout of the vaccine was extended to people in their 30s last week.

It is not known whether his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, has received her first dose of the vaccine yet.

William’s grandmother, the Queen, and her late grandfather, Prince Philip, received their first doses in January.

The vaccine rollout in the UK was extended for the second time this week, as people aged 34 and 35 in England will now be offered a vaccine.

NHS England has confirmed that more than one million people aged 34 and 35 will receive a text message on May 20 or May 21 asking them to book their COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

People in their early 30s may have the chance to be vaccinated “over the next few days and week,” NHS England said.
