Piers Morgan has vowed to get the coronavirus vaccine on live TV in a row with anti-vaxxers.
Pharmaceutical company Pfizer stated yesterday that trials showed their vaccine was 90% effective in preventing Covid-19.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has reportedly told the NHS to be ready to roll out a jab from the beginning of December if it is approved – with discussions taking place on who will get their hands on it first.
Piers has now insisted that he will get an injection live on TV if it is approved, taking aim at those who are against the medicine.
Taking to Twitter, the Good Morning Britain host said: ‘To all the anti-vaxxer Covidiots predictably now screaming that they won’t have the jab, let me say this: a) If it’s approved then I will have it done live on TV.
‘b) If you refuse to have it then no more flying for you, and no using the NHS if you get covid. Deal?’
Piers may have to wait a while for a jab, as Boris Johnson was adamant we are ‘still some way off’ a full roll-out of the drug.
Despite the breakthrough from Pfizer, the Prime Minister begged the public to not ‘slacken their resolve’ against the virus at a ‘critical’ moment.
In a press conference on Monday, he told the nation: ‘I must stress that these are very, very early days.
‘I can tell you that tonight that toot of the bugle is louder, but it’s still some way off, we absolutely cannot rely on this news as a solution.
‘The biggest mistake we could make now would be to slacken our resolve at a critical moment.’
Stressing the importance of following lockdown rules, he added: ‘Irrespective of whether a vaccine is on the way or not we must do everything possible to bring the R rate down.’
