The Duchess of Cambridge has shared a photo of herself receiving the coronavirus vaccine.

Posting on Twitter, she said she had got the injection at the Science Museum in London.

“Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing,” she posted.

It comes a few days after Prince William got his jab, with people over 30 now eligible for vaccination, leaving only adults aged between 18 and 29 still having to wait.

People aged 39 and under, and pregnant women, are being offered the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccine in line with recently updated guidance.

The programme, which is now going down in two-year increments, went from 37-year-olds to 30-year-olds in 10 days.

Some areas, where the Indian variant is spreading, have increased the speed of their vaccine rollout over the past two weeks to try to protect people.
