Susanna Reid has had her coronavirus jab
Susanna wrote on Twitter: “JABBED! Thanks to Kamilah who administered the AZ vax (& Graeme who booked me in).
“Thumbs up to all the hard-working staff & volunteers at St Thomas’ Hospital vaccination centre (where Boris Johnson also got his today) on a record day for jabs.”
The broadcaster had briefly delayed getting her jab in case she suffered from tiredness afterwards which could affect her on GMB.
However, with a weekend away from the studio a Friday afternoon was the perfect time.

Meanwhile Boris returned to St Thomas’ Hospital, where he was treated for the virus in intensive care last year, for his appointment at 6.30pm this evening.
Speaking to reporters outside the hospital, he said: “I did not feel a thing. It was very good and very quick.
“I cannot recommend it more highly. When you get your notification please go and get your jab.
Reassuring Brits that the Astrazeneca jab was safe, he added: “Don’t just listen to me, listen to what all the scientists and the European Medicines Agency have to say.”

He was joined by France’s prime minister Jean Castex and Slovenia’s leader Janez Jansa, who both received the AstraZeneca vaccine today to try and rebuild confidence in it on the continent.
The PM earlier insisted there was no reason to worry about scare stories from the EU and told Brits: “The Oxford jab is safe and the Pfizer jab is safe.
“The thing that isn’t safe is catching Covid, which is why it’s so important that we all get our jabs as soon as our turn comes.
“Get that jab when your turn comes. Let’s get the jab done.”
