London, Feb 26 (TIWN) Queen Elizabeth II has urged the citizens to "think about other people" and get a Covid dose when they are offered one.

 Describing her own coronavirus vaccination, she said: “It was very quick, and I’ve had lots of letters from people who have been very surprised at how easy it was to get the vaccine. And the jab – it didn’t hurt at all.”

The monarch praised the vaccine programme, describing its rapid progress as “remarkable”, and told the health leaders to “keep up the good work”.
 
She said: “Once you’ve had the vaccine, you have a feeling of, you know, you’re protected, which is I think very important. I think the other thing is, that it is obviously difficult for people if they’ve never had a vaccine … but they ought to think about other people rather than themselves.”
 
She added: “I think it is remarkable how quickly the whole thing has been done and so many people have had the vaccine already.”
