Watch: UK PM Boris Johnson gets his first jab of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine

British PM Boris Johnson received his first dose of AstraZeneca's Covid vaccine on Friday.

The 56-year-old UK PM took to Twitter and shared a video urging the public to do the same.

Johnson received the jab at Gassiot House Outpatient Centre in London's St Thomas' Hospital.

Last year, Johnson was diagnosed with Covid and was admitted to the hospital for treatment.

Johnson had spent a week at St Thomas' Hospital including three days in intensive care.

AstraZeneca's jab, developed with Oxford, provides the bulk of Britain's inoculation campaign.

A large portion of its supply has also been produced by the Serum Institute of India.

Vaccine production is truly international collaboration in India: EAM [Video]

Vaccine production is truly international collaboration in India: EAM

Union External Affairs Minister, Dr S Jaishankar attended a virtual conversation, called 'Global Dialogue Series' on May 05. He said, "Our vaccine production situation was different from many other countries. On what basis Covishield was being made in India? It's Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, you can say it's British-designed product. It was made in India as the vaccine owner saw India as an efficient production venue. Along with that the ability and approval to make in India, came an obligation to supply it to a large part of the world. So, people have to understand, it was not that vaccine production started in India, it was invented by an Indian, owned by an Indian, produced by an Indian." He further said, "It was a truly international collaboration. When there is an international collaboration, if somebody gave you a vaccine to make in India, then you have to do your part, otherwise, it doesn't work. It also came with support from the Covax initiative. So, there was an obligation to support the Covax initiative to give vaccines at a low cost to a number of nations."
