Buckingham Palace officials said on Saturday that Queen Elizabeth II, 94, and her husband, Prince Philip, 99, have received a vaccine against the coronavirus.
The royal family rarely commented on the health of the monarch or his family, but said the move was to prevent mistakes or speculation.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said in a statement: “The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have received the Covid-19 vaccination today.”
The pandemic frustrated Britain.
According to Johns Hopkins University (Johns Hopkins University), it has the highest death toll in Europe-more than 81
The emergence of a more infectious Covid-19 mutant in the UK has also led to a surge in cases.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (Boris Johnson) accelerated vaccination work this week, among which the elderly and vulnerable groups are priority groups. Johnson said on Tuesday that 1.3 million people across the UK have been vaccinated.
I don’t know what kind of vaccine the queen and her husband had.
The vaccination conducted by the British drug manufacturer AstraZeneca in cooperation with the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom was approved by the regulatory authorities in December, and the United Kingdom made global headlines that month when it became the first Western country to launch the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine.
On Friday, the British regulator approved the third vaccine produced by Moderna, but said it would not be available until the spring.
