The Queen

Fully vaccinated – a delighted Queen receives her second dosage of the coronavirus vaccine


The Queen has received her second dosage of a coronavirus vaccine according to reports.

The Sun says that Her Majesty received her second jab ahead of her first public appearance in five months on Wednesday when she visited Runnymede.

It is unknown whether The Queen had the Pfizer vaccine or the AstraZeneca jab.

The Queen received her first vaccination alongside the Duke of Edinburgh at the beginning of January.

It is unknown whether Prince Philip has also received his second jab, with his recent hospitalisation possibly delaying the process.

A royal insider told The Sun: “Given the Queen has decided to make a public appearance so close to 12 weeks after the announcement of receiving her first vaccine it is clear she has already had her second.

“Aides won’t have wanted to put her at any risk. 

“It is obviously much more reassuring to know that anyone who has received two doses of the vaccine is so well protected — even aged 94.”

Vaccinations are being rolled out across the UK in a widely successful jabbing campaign.

Almost 60% of adults have now received their first dosage, with 8% also having their second.

People are being offered a vaccination based on their age groups. It is hoped all UK adults will be offered their first jab by the summer.

The Queen has conducted only her fourth public engagement in over a year on Wednesday.

Her Majesty left her Windsor Castle quarantine bubble to mark the Centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Air Forces Memorial in Runnymede.

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) on Wednesday marks 100 years of service to Australia. From modest beginnings in 1921, the RAAF has grown into an Air Force which Australia relies upon in both conflict and peace.

To commemorate and reflect on the occasion, The Queen attended a service where Her Majesty’s Equerry laid a wreath on Her behalf. 

Following the Service, The Queen viewed panels bearing the names of Australian war dead and a display of fallen airmen and women in the memorial cloister, before meeting serving RAAF personnel. 

Before departing for Windsor Castle, Her Majesty signed a commemorative document marking her visit on the anniversary.
