Prince William Gets His First Dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine
Prince William is just one of the Royals who has now received his first COVID-19 vaccine. Many may not be aware that the monarch also fell ill with the infectious virus last year.
Prince William took to him and his wife Kate Middleton's Instagram to share some news with the public. The Duke of Cambridge posted a picture of himself receiving his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
William sat down with a mask on, looking the other way and lifting his sleeve as a medical professional administered the vaccine on the upper part of his right arm.
Taking to the caption, the Prince explained that he recently received his first dosage of the vaccine meant to protect individuals from the virus. He wrote:
"To all those working on the vaccine rollout - thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do."
Prince William was dressed in a laid-back yet regal style, with a blue long-sleeved shirt on. He combined this with a tasteful golden watch.
THE FAN'S REACTIONS
William included a link to the COVID-19 information center at the bottom of the post. Many individuals showed their respect towards the Prince in the comment section.

THE ROYAL'S HEALTH
Until recently, the general public did not know that Prince William had contracted COVID-19. He was diagnosed last year around the same period that his father, Prince Charles, also had the virus.
Luckily, the future King is now healthy, with the rest of his family ensuring their future wellness by receiving their shots. This includes Charles and the Queen who encouraged citizens to follow suit.
A PROUD PRINCE
In January of this year, Prince William expressed pride towards his grandmother Queen Elizabeth and the now-deceased Prince Philip for receiving their vaccines. He thanked the frontline workers too.
The Duke of Cambridge conversed with professionals in an online video call, emphasizing the importance of these shots. At the time, he noted that nearly 3 million individuals had been vaccinated.
The Prince and his other half, Middleton, continue to advocate for the importance of the COVID-19 immunization. In a video shared on the couple's YouTube channel in March, William expressed:
"Especially for those who are clinically vulnerable as well it's so important that those vaccinations are done."
