Prime Minister Boris Johnson has received the first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine and signed off his inoculation session with an affirming two thumbs up.

Johnson received the jab at St. Thomas Hospital in London, where he was admitted to receive intensive care after contracting the virus back in April.

Following the jab, the Prime Minister stated “I literally did not feel a thing and so it was very good, very quick and I cannot recommend it too highly.”

United States President Joe Biden is reportedly ‘just fine’ after stumbling up the steps of Air Force One, with the video making the rounds on the internet soon after.

78-year-old Biden is the oldest-ever US president and managed to get up unscathed from the fall, but is not the first president to have stumbled up or down the stairs of Air Force One.

Back in 1975, president Gerald Ford slipped and fell in Salzburg, Austria due a wet ramp with Barack Obama nearly meeting the same fate in 2015.
