British PM Johnson receives second COVID-19 vaccine jab

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has received his second jab of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, the Mail reported on Thursday.

Johnson got his vaccine shot at the Francis Crick Institute in central London on Thursday evening. He gave a thumbs up after the jab and said he “didn’t feel a thing”, the same reaction he gave to his first dose at St Thomas’ Hospital in central London March.

The Prime Minister spent many days in intensive care at St Thomas’ hospital after contracting the coronavirus in Spring 2020.

The news comes on the same day that half of adults in the UK are thought to have received both jabs of a vaccine, according to a new tally, and a day after the Government announced that three quarters of adults had received their first shot.

A total of 26,422,303 second jabs have now been delivered since the vaccination rollout started almost 6 months ago.

This is the equivalent of 50.2% of all people aged 18 and over.
