Boris Johnson Leaves Hospital After First Dose of AstraZeneca COVID Vaccine

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson received his first dose of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine at St Thomas’ Hospital in London on Friday, March 19, and took to Twitter to encourage others to do the same.

Chris Woods captured this video as Johnson left the London hospital on Friday evening, stopping to chat to media outside. Johnson praised his nurse and said he “did not feel a thing.”

“Everybody, when you do get your notification to go for a jab, please go and get it,” he said.

On Twitter, the prime minister thanked the “incredible scientists, NHS staff and volunteers who helped make this happen.”

“Getting the jab is the best thing we can do to get back to the lives we miss so much,” Johnson wrote. “Let’s get the jab done.” Credit: Chris Woods via Storyful
