Dr. Alex George has shared his relief over finally receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.
The Love Island star, 30, has been working on the NHS frontline in A&E at the University Hospital Lewisham in South East London since the killer virus broke out in March last year.
Taking to his Instagram Stories on Wednesday, the former reality TV star said that he had endured a tough year, and was finally able to see some light at the end of the dark tunnel.
Alex looked cheerful as he gave the camera a thumbs up while sitting alongside a pharmacist who administered the vaccine in his workplace.
