Hole singer and ex-wife of the late Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Courtney Love, was vaccinated against COVID-19 in England despite not being among the group of adults over 65 vulnerable to the disease, who al They are currently the only ones to be vaccinated in the UK.
The 56-year-old American singer left Los Angeles for London in the fall of 2019 to focus on writing her book and recording a new album and has been based in the United Kingdom since then.
The news caused controversy since only the elderly, health workers and extremely vulnerable adults are receiving immunizing doses.
In this regard, Courtney Love's environment has indicated to British media that the singer “has a condition underlying health condition that makes you eligible. She is extremely grateful to the NHS and all the frontline workers. "
And his gratitude has made it very notorious because on his Instagram account, Love published the photos of when he received the vaccine this Sunday
The singer wore a black outfit that included a dress, matching stockings and heels, and a protective mask. Courtney turned her face away from the masked nurse administering the injection into her upper arm.
Captioning the image, she wrote: 'I have vax, in Chelsea, thanks @nhsenglandldn.'
Since the vaccine was launched in January, only the highest priority groups have been called in for the injection, including the elderly, 'clinically extremely vulnerable people' under the age of 70, and health and social care workers.
With current government programming, the 2.4 million UK residents in Courtney's age group 55-59 should expect to be called in for the vaccine closer to April. But Courtney's is not the only case. Realitly British star Nadia Essex, 39, posted on Twitter last Thursday that she had already received the vaccine but it is unclear why.
“I just got a call from my doctors to offer the vaccine. When I explained that it shouldn't be that high on the list since there are no health issues, she snorted: well, you're on our list, whether you want it or not! " However, I feel bad about taking it away from someone who needs it. What to do ..? '”
wrote. After 92.3% of the people voted in favor of her accepting it, she said: “ I'm going for it. Thank you all for your advice. It really eases my mind and I feel less guilty. "
TV host, 60, Ruth Langsford, also revealed that she received the Covid-19 vaccine in Surrey on Saturday. She admitted that she was "very grateful" to have the Oxford / AstraZeneca fix as she shared a photo of the experience on social media.
Courtney Love moved to London on October 18, 2019 and was told by the British media at the time that her decision was due to the great love she has for the country.
“I have lived here at various times in my life and each time leaving the UK, it made me sad. And also, you know, for a while I didn't pick up the guitar. I stopped having the kind of relationship you need to have with the guitar to write good guitar songs. So, I came here to focus on writing my book and my record, " said the singer.
Although there is no clear explanation of the condition that led Love to skip the vaccination list, the truth is that the United Kingdom advances in its mass immunization program and has already managed to apply more than 15 million COVID vaccines.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the UK had taken a “step towards freedom” after achieving this number by February 15.
Everyone in the top four priority groups (over 70, NHS workers, nursing home residents and staff, and seriously ill adults) have received their first dose, ministers say.
But Hancock admitted that "there was still a lot of work to do."
# 10 aims to deliver a dose to 17 million more people in priority groups of five to nine, all those over 50 and adults with underlying conditions, by Easter.
Ministers will need to juggle this with administering second doses to those in the four main groups, which means they will have to pick up the pace to ensure that the implementation of the lockdown easing is not slowed down by the need to distribute refill doses.
Starting Monday, people over the age of 65 and younger people with underlying health problems in England will be offered the vaccine as the program moves up the priority list
If the vaccine rollout maintains its pace and Covid cases continue to plummet, finally there could be light at the end of the tunnel
