It didn’t hurt at all – Queen Elizabeth speaks on Covid jab

Queen Elizabeth II has said her Covid-19 vaccination “didn’t hurt at all”.

Speaking with health officials leading vaccine deployment across the UK, the revered monarch said, “It was very quick, and I’ve had lots of letters from people who have been very surprised at how easy it was to get the vaccine . And the jab – it didn’t hurt at all.”

UK Guardian reports that the nonagenarian hailed the vaccine programme, describing its rapid progress as “remarkable”, and told the health leaders to “keep up the good work”.

She said: “Once you’ve had the vaccine, you have a feeling of, you know, you’re protected, which is I think very important. I think the other thing is, that it is obviously difficult for people if they’ve never had a vaccine … but they ought to think about other people rather than themselves.”

She added: “I think it is remarkable how quickly the whole thing has been done and so many people have had the vaccine already.”

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh received their vaccinations in January at Windsor Castle, where they had been shielding together until Prince Philip’s admission to hospital as a precautionary measure on 16 February.

He is being treated for a non-Covid infection at the King Edward VII hospital in central London.
