PM Boris Johnson Receives His Second Covid Vaccine Jab.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson received his second vaccine jab just as half of the adults in the UK are thought to have received both doses of a vaccine, according to new figures.
Recently married, the Prime Minister got his jab at the Francis Crick Institute in central London on Thursday evening, June 3. Mr Johnson 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 in March.
A photo of him having his second inoculation was released on his official Twitter account with the words: “Second jab done. When it’s your turn, get the jab.”
The Prime Minister spent several days in intensive care at St Thomas’ hospital after contracting Covid-19 in spring 2020.
A total of 26,422,303 second doses have now been delivered since the vaccination rollout began almost six months ago which is the equivalent of 50.2 per cent of all people aged 18 and over. In England, 22,442,383 second doses have been given – the equivalent of 50.7 per cent of the adult population.
The second injection came just under 11 weeks after his first dose on March 19 and was administered by Dr James Black.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
