Emily continued: “I had a sore arm afterwards but I didn’t have any other side effects, like feeling tired or a headache.”

Continuing to open up about why she wants to speak out and tell others she has had it, Emily reflected on her decision to film her getting the vaccine for her YouTube channel with husband Peter Andre.

She said: “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.”

However she hoped that it would help others out there to see it for themselves, saying: “I hope that if one elderly or vulnerable person felt reassured after watching then it was worthwhile.”

This comes after Emily and Peter shared the footage of her receiving her jab at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust with their social media followers.

In the clip, Emily says: “I feel like I'm part of something really important. I feel grateful that I'm able to get the vaccine.”

She added: "That's why I wanted to document it, to show people that doctors, NHS workers are getting this done and we aren't scared.”

“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."

This comes after Peter himself battled Coronavirus between Christmas and New Year.
