Emily Andrea has opened up about her thoughts on the Oxford vaccine against coronavirus, saying she hopes that people in the UK will believe in its effectiveness.
Speaking exclusively in her OK! Magazine column after concerns were raised in other countries about the vaccine, doctor Emily set the record straight.
The 31 year old NHS worker said: “After several countries rejected using the Oxford vaccine for over 65s, the World Health Organisation has now backed the jab for use in all age groups and against different variants, which is reassuring news.”

She continued that she hoped that the latest news would mean others would be encouraged to go and have the vaccine.
She said: “It’s been very positive to see how good the uptake of the vaccine has been in the UK, and I hope this will give people more reassurance about the effectiveness of the vaccine.”
This comes after Emily revealed she was grateful to have received the jab having been on the priority list.
Again, writing in her OK! Magazine column, the mum of two said: “I feel great after having my coronavirus vaccine. It felt like a big moment, and I feel very proud and grateful to have received it.”
"For me, it was important to get vaccinated as I want to protect my patients and colleagues as much as possible,” she added.
Emily then went on to speak about how she felt immediately after having the vaccine, revealing she had barely any of the side effects.
She explained: “I had a sore arm afterwards but I didn’t have any other side effects, like feeling tired or a headache.”
Emily also spoke about her decision to share the footage of her receiving her jab at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust on her YouTube channel that she shares with her husband Peter.
She reflected: “I knew there may be some negative comments about the vaccine, because you’re always going to get people who don’t agree with it or don’t understand why we documented it.”

“We just want to protect other people, protect our patients, protect our colleagues so that everyone can carry on the good work they're doing." she concluded.
