Fully vaccinated after second coronavirus jab

Jimmy Cricket has had his second vaccination jab to protect against Covid

Famous funnyman Jimmy Cricket has now had both doses of the coronavirus vaccination.

The popular Northern Irish entertainer updated his Facebook profile with the graphic above, saying ‘fully vaccinated’.

Jimmy had received his first vaccination jab to protect against Covid in January, at Number One Riverside in Rochdale, where he lives.

He has encouraged everybody else to do the same when their time comes.

More than 33 million people in the UK have now received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

As Humphrey Bogart said, “Here’s Looking At You Kid”. #COVID19Vaccines

Several months ago, Jimmy devised a perfect little ditty to keep our spirits going during the coronavirus lockdown.

The comedian adapted the words of an old war-time favourite, Roll out the Barrel.

He recorded his very own version for YouTube, called Roll out the Vaccine.

The UK government has said every adult in the country can have a coronavirus vaccine by autumn this year.

Roll out the Barrel was particularly popular worldwide during World War II.

Jimmy Cricket updated his profile picture on social media to remember those who have died during the coronavirus pandemic.

The famous comedian uploaded a photograph of him alongside several other well-known celebrities.

They included the late Frank Carson and also fellow funnyman Bobby Ball, who died in October aged 76.

Bobby, one half of the popular comedy double act Cannon and Ball, passed away at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

The actor and comedian had tested positive for Covid-19.

Bobby starred in several popular sitcoms.

They included Not Going Out, Last of the Summer Wine and Benidorm.

Jimmy posted the photo on Tuesday 23 March, which marked exactly one year since the first coronavirus lockdown.

Tommy Cannon and Wee Jimmy Frankie also featured on the picture.

The text on the photo said: “In honour of those lost to Covid-19” and “UK national day of reflection.”

A national minute’s silence was held at midday, which parliaments across the UK paused business to observe.

On 23 March 2020, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced tough restrictions on people’s lives aimed at stopping the spread of Covid-19.

Since then, the UK’s official death toll has risen from 364 to more than 126,000.
