Lord of the Rings star McKellen receives Covid-19 vaccine

Sir Ian McKellen has become the latest celebrity to be photographed receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.

The 81-year-old star of the X-Men and Lord of the Rings films said he felt “euphoric” to be vaccinated at Queen Mary’s University Hospital in London, BBC reports.

“Anyone who has lived as long as I have is alive because they have had previous vaccinations,” said the veteran actor.

Prue Leith, Marty Wilde and Lionel Blair are among other stars to have had the Pfizer vaccine administered.

“Who wouldn’t want immunity from Covid-19 with a painless jab??” tweeted Leith after getting her jab this week.

Sir Ian said it was “a very special day” to receive the “painless” and “convenient” vaccination from GP Dr Phil Bennett-Richards.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone,” he continued, saying he felt “very lucky”.

Healthcare workers, the elderly and people living in care homes are among the first to receive the vaccine in the UK.
