Peter Andre has lent his support to wife Emily MacDonagh as she got her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Emily is an NHS doctor who has been working on the frontline in the midst of the pandemic, and was near the front of the queue at Epsom Hospital to receive the first of two jabs.
Of course, husband Pete also went along with her, with the singer showcasing the moment in a new video on their joint YouTube channel, Life With The Andres.
In the clip, Peter told fans that he was given permission by the hospital to film Emily receiving her vaccine, as they also feel that it would give others an idea of what to expect and how it works.
Just before she got her vaccine, Peter asked his wife how she was feeling, to which she responded: ‘I feel like I’m part of something really important. I feel grateful really, that I’m able to get the vaccine.
‘And that’s why I wanted to document it, to show people that doctors, NHS workers are getting this done and we’re not scared, and we just wanna protect other people, protect our patients, protect our colleagues so that everyone can carry on doing the good work they are doing.’
Peter than documented the vaccination process, with NHS worker Laura asking Emily a few general questions, such as if she had any other vaccines within the past seven days, and if she had suffered from coronavirus in the last 28 days.
Later discussing the concerns some have had over the jab, Emily explained: ‘I think people are worried about this because it’s something new.
‘It’s just another vaccine and not only that, it’s vaccinating against something which is incredibly important to vaccinate against.
‘The reason we’re all in lockdown at the moment is because of coronavirus, so we need to try and come together and tackle it as one.’
Emily also stressed the vaccine has been ‘prioritised’ because of the pandemic, and that’s why it has come out sooner rather than later.
Laura then talked about the side effects following the vaccination, which include soreness in the area of the arm the needle went into, as well as headaches and tiredness.
Later on, she prepared the needle being used, which is then inserted into Emily’s left arm.
‘Thank you so much! I didn’t even feel a thing,’ Emily admitted immediately after, as she was given a cotton pad to hold onto her arm to stop any slight bleeding.’
She added: ‘It was brilliantly administered, no complaints from me.’
After, Laura added a plaster to Emily’s arm and then gave her an official Pfizer card as proof she’s received her first dose.
It comes after Peter himself tested positive for coronavirus earlier this month, with a rep for the 47-year-old confirming to Metro.co.uk that he was ‘coping well so far’ while recovering from home.
It’s believed Peter started to feel ill a few days prior and was tested for the virus, after feeling ‘very weak’ and ‘struggling to breathe’.
Sources claimed that the Mysterious Girl hitmaker had ‘no idea’ how he caught Covid-19, as he had been looking after his children while Emily was busy working for the NHS.
In the YouTube video, Emily revealed that she had tested for the illness herself twice a week following Peter’s diagnosis, but thankfully tested negative ‘on all occasions’. Peter has since recovered.
