As a new strain of the contagious virus begins to spread, people taking a double shot are advised to receive their third shot of the vaccine, a double booster shot.
Loose Women presenter Kaye, 58, is one of many to take precautions, after it was reported that a new ‘super-strain’ variant of Covid called Omicron was detected in Essex and Nottingham.
The broadcaster told her fans earlier this week that she would be getting her third shot and on Saturday night informed her fans of her reaction to the vaccine dose.
Speaking to her 116,000 Instagram followers, she reassured people that she felt “happy” after being boosted with the life-saving vaccine.
“So no, I haven’t spent the last 24 hours in this car, but it’s been 24 hours since I had my booster, so I thought I would educate you on the side effect I felt”, she teased viewers of her. Instagram Stories.
On a second story, she revealed, “None. Nada. Zilch. Net, Nothing, Nothing, I’m a ticket boo. “
Kaye has been a strong supporter of the Covid vaccine and urged people to protect themselves as the pandemic rages on.
Earlier this month, she clashed with her Loose Women co-star Carol McGiffin during a discussion over whether caregivers who refuse to be vaccinated should be fired.
Carol, 61, has passionately shared her anti-vaxx and opposition to the lockdown on social media for the past two years.
During the ITV show, Kaye kicked things off by saying, “” If someone had come and said that I chose not to get the vaccine, I would have had a problem with them taking care of. my mother and my father. ”
Carol objected to this view and expressed her opinion that the rule attacks people’s “freedom” to choose.
“If all these people leave the care sector, it will be absolute carnage! I can’t believe they are doing it, and I can’t believe they are doing it to NHS workers, ”she exclaimed on the daytime TV show. .
“They force people to have an injection when they don’t want it, and they think they don’t need it. “
The vaccines currently approved for use in the UK are:

Kaye remained firmly convinced that the life-saving vaccine is something that should be promoted and encouraged wherever possible.
“All I’m saying is if the vaccine is our best protection – not the perfect protection – and I happen to believe it, then I would like my parents to have the best protection,” the star replied calmly. Scottish.
Earlier this year, former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan dubbed Carol “an irrelevant has been” because their long-running feud had a special Covid-themed edition.
Carol used a magazine column to criticize the presenter for trying to “shut down” people’s free speech with his positive views on vaccines.
After their “feud” was reported, Piers hit back on Twitter claiming that he “doesn’t feud with irrelevant has-been”.
