Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has vowed to have the coronavirus vaccine live on television when it becomes available.
The outspoken presenter is known for his opinions and the latest news suggesting that we're closer to getting a vaccine to fight Covid-19 has got him talking.
Pfizer's new coronavirus vaccine could be in public use within weeks, helping to end the second lockdown and saving Christmas, it is hoped.
Piers, 55, is fully onboard with this new breakthrough and took to Twitter to share his view on the matter.
The ITV star posted: "To all the anti-vaxxer Covidiots predictably now screaming that they won’t have the jab, let me say this: a) If it’s approved then I will have it done live on TV. b) If you refuse to have it then no more flying for you, and no using the NHS if you get covid. Deal?"
As usual his tweet got a mixed response from his followers.
One fan replied: "Wow. People will eat a kebab without knowing any of its contents but refuse a life saving vaccine developed by scientists, produced under heavily regulated conditions and tested. Wow."
Another added: "I am 69 with COPD. Do I want that vaccine? bet your bloody life I do bring it on…."
However some didn't agree with Piers' message.
One follower penned: "NO! NO! NO! I will not let anybody inject microbes into my body!
"They have been proven to develop and become GPS signals so the government can track you.
"This is all one massive hoax. Don't take the vaccine!"
Another one said: "Anti vaxxers… we are branded this name yet we trusted and gave our loved ones vaccines as recommended. vaccines that resulted in children being neurologically damaged by vaccinations that were unapproved/quickly approved just like these. Expected more research from u Piers [sic]."
Piers' tweet comes after Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News he hoped to begin deploying the vaccine at the start of December.
Mr Hancock stated that elderly patients and those most at risk of catching coronavirus would get it first.
He described the news as "promising" but warned Brits to continue to abide by the second lockdown and follow coronavirus protocols in the short term as the vaccine was not yet ready for mass roll out.
