Matt Hancock grins as he receives first Covid jab from colleague JVT

The health secretary has been given his first Covid jab by colleague Professor Jonathan Van-Tam and said it ‘didn’t hurt at all’.

Matt Hancock pulled a thumbs up and grinned through a face mask as England’s deputy chief medical officer injected his arm at London’s Science Museum.

The 42-year-old, who received the AstraZeneca jab, said he could ‘barely feel it’ before JVT told him he must return in 12 weeks.

Mr Hancock said he was ‘very excited’ when he got the call to receive his first dose and urged Britons to take up their offer when they receive an invite.

Sharing an image of the moment he called a ‘privilege’, he wrote on Twitter: ‘Brilliant! Got the jab. In & out in 8 minutes. Didn’t hurt at all.

‘Massive thanks to JVT & the @sciencemuseum team.

‘When you get the call, get the jab!’
