COVID-19: Boris Johnson receives second dose of AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine | UK News

Boris Johnson has received his second dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

The Prime Minister received his vaccine at the Francis Crick Institute in London on Thursday evening, after receiving his first dose in March.

His first jab was administered at St Thomas’ Hospital, where he was treated in intensive care last year after contracting COVID.

Mr Johnson joins the more than half of all adults in the UK who have now received two doses of coronavirus.

Earlier Thursday, Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi congratulated the deployment team for reaching “another milestone”.

After his first attempt, the Prime Minister told reporters: “I literally didn’t feel anything and so it was very good, very fast and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

“Everyone, when you get your notification to go get a jab, go get it. It’s the best thing for you, the best thing for your family and for everyone.”

Mr Johnson received the AstraZeneca jab, which was suspended in some European countries earlier this year due to concerns over blood clots.

People under 30 in the UK are offered an alternative COVID vaccine to the AstraZeneca vaccine due to evidence suggesting a link.

The World Health Organization and the MHRA have said the vaccine is safe and have encouraged people to make appointments for the vaccines.

US President Joe Biden, Indian Narendra Modi, Indonesian Joko Widodo, Turkish Recep Erdogan, Israeli Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi King Salman are other world leaders who have received a COVID vaccine.
