Lorraine star Dr Amir Khan got the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine live on air on Wednesday as he proved there was absolutely nothing to fear and asked those concerned to consider, “What alternative is there?”
Dr Amir’s flirty nurse complimented his muscles during the giggly appointment in Bradford with the doctor confirming he felt fine afterwards other than a slightly sore arm.
Reporting to Ranvir Singh, who is covering for Lorraine Kelly, Dr Amir explained that the vaccine means he could still contract Covid, but it would not be anywhere near as serious.
Dr Amir said: “I am feeling really positive, I managed to get mine because I am a frontline NHS worker.
Dr Amir said: “I have had vaccines before when I go travelling, but that was nothing at all, it was nothing to fear.
“I’ve had my Covid vaccine, it was so exciting, and I will be booking in for my second one in three weeks’ time.”
The jab requires a booster after three weeks, to get the full immunity, and up to two weeks after that, the patient’s treatment is fully done.
Dr Amir stayed under supervision at the surgery for 15 minutes after the jab, and he said a small number of people had allergic reactions to it, but that was normal.
“People who are sitting at home watching this and thinking, ‘Oh I don’t want to go, I am reluctant, I’ve got all these questions,
“Just ask yourself, what is the alternative, getting the vaccine and getting out of this whole nightmare that we are in, or finding ourselves in lockdown, seeing the economy nose dive, and more importantly, hearing about more and more deaths.”
