James Argent has been pictured heading out of his GP after getting a dose of his Covid-19 vaccine.
The reality star, who previously opened up about his fears that he could be in ‘serious trouble’ if he contracts coronavirus, masked up for safety amid the pandemic.
He looked casual in tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie as he headed to his local doctor’s and could be seen holding his vaccine card as he left.
The 33-year-old has joined the millions of others in the UK to have received their first dose of the vaccine.
James previously revealed he was scared of contracting coronavirus, fearing it would leave him seriously ill due to his weight.
Appearing on Loose Women, Arg spoke openly about how he was considering getting a gastric band, and said: ‘I spoke to my doctor on the phone numerous amounts of time and even though I had lost a lot of weight at the start of the year I was always considering weight loss surgery.’
He added: ‘My doctor said the weight I am right now, 26 stone, that is danger territory.
‘My mum and my dad both suffer from heart problems and my dad has got a pacemaker so there could be serious implications for my heart […]
‘People even say to me, with my weight as it is at the moment, if I catch Covid, I could be one of the people that could be in serious trouble.’
Since his candid appearance on the show, James has started his gruelling fitness regime, being pictured taking on intense workouts in a bid to switch up his lifestyle.
The vaccination programme started with the over-80s, with vulnerable people now being offered the vaccine.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently said that, by the end of July, all adults should have been offered a jab.
