The Duchess of Cambridge receives first dose of COVID-19 vaccine

The Duchess of Cambridge has received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Her Royal Highness received her vaccination at the London Science Museum – the same location where Prince William received his first jab last week.

Taking to Twitter, Catherine wrote: “Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing.”

The Duke of Cambridge received his first dose of the vaccine last Tuesday at the Science Museum – a short distance away from the couple’s home at Kensington Palace.

The Queen received both her doses of the coronavirus vaccine earlier this year and the Duchess of Cornwall has spoken several times about overcoming her fear of needles to get her own jabs against the virus. T

The Duke of Cambridge, who is 39-years-old, has had to wait until now for her age group to be invited to receive the vaccination.

More than 38 million people in the UK have now received their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

Jabs are being offered to people aged over 30 in England and Scotland, and over-18s in Northern Ireland and parts of Wales.
