    Dame Joan Collins has had her COVID-19 vaccination

    The 'Dynasty' star - who is 87-years-old - was given her first dose of the vaccination against coronavirus and admitted she was "honoured" to receive the jab


    Sharing a picture of herself getting the jab at a surgery in London, she captioned the snap: "Delighted to get @astrazeneca @ouhospitals #vaccine yesterday morning at the @nhsenglandldn Bloomsbury surgery - thank you Mr. @rajgill2585 and @dr_ammarahughes for a painless and seamless procedure! Same day as our Queen! #honoured #registernow (sic)"

    The coronavirus vaccine is currently being rolled out in the UK to those over 80 first as well as those who work on the frontline as doctors and nurses, before being rolled out further.

    It comes after Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip received their vaccinations over the weekend.

    The British monarch, 94, and her husband, 99, were administered with the vaccination on Saturday afternoon (09.01.21) as they are in the over 80 group, who are some of the first people to be vaccinated. A doctor at Windsor Castle is said to have given them the vaccine.

    It is uncommon for the royals to issue statements on private health matters but it is believed the Queen decided to announce the news to avoid any speculation.

    Other stars to receive their jab include singer Sir Tom Jones, who is 80-years-old.

    And Sir Paul McCartney, who is 78, is keen to have the coronavirus vaccine.

    Speaking about his reasoning behind getting the jab, he said: "I know we’ll come through this. It is great news about the vaccine. I’ll have it as soon as I’m allowed. I’m a grandad and you don’t want grandad to collapse. You’ve got to stay strong, that’s all you can do, or you go under."
