Boris Johnson gets his second dose of Covid vaccination.
Boris Johnson has received his second dosage of the coronavirus vaccine from AstraZeneca.
On Thursday evening, the Prime Minister received his jab at the Francis Crick Institute in central London.
Mr Johnson gave a thumbs up and said he “didn’t feel a thing” following the injection, echoing his reaction to his first treatment in March at St Thomas’ Hospital in central London.
Dr. James Black provided the second injection, which came just about 11 weeks after his initial dose on March 19.
Dr. Black said he was helping at the immunization center once a week while continuing his work on blood cancer research at the institute, and Mr. Johnson thanked him.
After contracting Covid-19 in Spring 2020, the Prime Minister spent several days in intensive care at St Thomas’ hospital.
The news comes a day after the Government reported that three quarters of adults had received their first dosage, and a day after half of adults in the UK are estimated to have got both doses of a vaccination, according to new estimates.
Since the immunization campaign began over six months ago, a total of 26,422,303 second doses had been provided.
This is the equivalent of 50.2 percent of all adults in the United States.
In England, a total of 22,442,383 second doses were administered, accounting for 50.7 percent of the adult population.
