British Prime Minister Boris Johnson refused to be vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus first, as a priority. This was reported by Reuters with reference to a representative of the British government.

Press secretary Allegra Stratton told reporters that the prime minister is likely to receive a dose of the vaccine during the television broadcast. However, she stressed, he is not going to be ahead of the queue to receive those who need it more than him.

“He will not overtake those who are extremely vulnerable to the disease and should be vaccinated earlier,” the agency quoted a government spokesman as saying.

Reuters recalls that the British government first of all vaccinates the population groups for whom the new type of coronavirus is most dangerous: residents of nursing homes, citizens of the country over 80 years old and medical workers.

On August 11, Russian leader Vladimir Putin revealed that one of his daughters had experienced the coronavirus vaccine herself. He clarified that after the first vaccination, his daughter had a temperature of 38, and “the next day – 37 with a little and that's it.” On the same day, he announced the registration in Russia of the first vaccine against COVID-19.

Boris Johnson was ill with COVID-19 this spring. The politician underwent treatment in the hospital of St. Thomas, where he spent three days in intensive care. The prime minister returned to duty a month after the infection.
