Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, has received his first Covid-19 vaccination shot, along with his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, a Clarence House spokesman said Wednesday.
Clarence House did not say where Charles, 72, and Camilla, 73, were vaccinated, or which vaccine they had received.
Charles tested positive for coronavirus after experiencing mild symptoms last March. He later added that he'd "got away with it quite lightly."
More than 12.6 million people in the UK have now received a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the government’s dashboard. The National Health Service (NHS) is now asking people aged 70 and over in England who haven’t been vaccinated to book an appointment.
The inoculations were administered by a household doctor at Windsor Castle, a royal source said.
