The 75-year-old resident television doctor joined the duo on today’s programme for a segment on the latest health headlines where he shared the exciting news.
‘Chris, what’s happening to you tomorrow? You’ve got a big day haven’t you?’ asked Holly.
‘I get my vaccination against Covid-19, thank goodness,’ he enthused.
‘Thank goodness, that’s great news,’ replied Holly, with Phil adding: ‘That’s good to know you’re protected. Another tick.’
Before the end of Dr Chris’ segment, Holly gave her well wishes.
‘Best of luck tomorrow,’ she told him.
Dr Chris will follow a long list of celebrities who have already had their jab against the virus, including Sir David Attenborough and Great British Bake Off’s Prue Leith.
Sir David, 94, received the Covid-19 vaccine within days of the Queen and said he was thrilled.
A publicist confirmed the news of Sir David’s vaccination to Metro.co.uk while an insider told The Sun: ‘Sir David was always keen to get vaccinated, and support both the current programme and the NHS.
‘Of course, as well as his family and loved ones, millions of animal fans across the globe will be delighted – this is brilliant news.’
Earlier this week, Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed at least 4 million Britons have received their first dose of the Covid-19 jab, including more than half of over-80s and care home residents.
