Queen Elizabeth urged her fellow Brits to get the COVID-19 vaccine, saying her experience was smooth and that the shot “didn’t hurt at all.”

The 94-year-old Queen was on a video call with health leaders on Tuesday to discuss the distribution of the vaccine across the UK, and she also stressed the importance of getting the jab, according to the BBC.

“Well, once you’ve had the vaccine you have a feeling of you know, you’re protected, which is I think very important, and as far as I can make out it was quite harmless,” she told the panel.

“It was very quick, and I’ve had lots of letters from people who’ve been very surprised by how easy it was to get the vaccine,” the Queen added. “And the jab, It didn’t hurt at all.”

The monarch said she understood some people might find it “difficult” to get vaccinated but urged the public to “think about other people rather than themselves”.

The Queen and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, received their first doses of the vaccine in January.

Prince Phillip was admitted to London’s King Edward VII’s Hospital last Tuesday where he’s being treated for an infection.
