The Good Morning Britain (GMB) host took to Twitter to promise to take a coronavirus jab when one is available. The UK has secured a total of 357 million doses of coronavirus jabs, with 100 million coming from Britain’s own Oxford and AstraZeneca jab. It comes after the UK recorded 12,330 cases of the virus yesterday, along with 203 deaths.
Mr Morgan said: “If I can, I’ll have an approved covid vaccine live on Good Morning Britain as soon as one is available.”
Before his vaccine promise, the host also responded to Daily Mail front page about a Tory minister warning un-vaccinated Brits could be turned away from hospitality business.
He said of the suggestion: “Great idea! This will test Covidiots’ principled resolve.”

Nadhim Zahawi, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Minister for vaccination, stated Brits without a coronavirus vaccine could be barred from pubs and restaurants.
When asked by the BBC whether those vaccinated would have an immunity passport, she said: “We are looking at the technology. And, of course, a way of people being able to inform their GP that they have been vaccinated.
“But, also, I think you’ll probably find that restaurants and bars and cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system – as they have done with the app.
“I think that in many ways the pressure will come from both ways. From service providers who’ll say: ‘Look, demonstrate to us that you have been vaccinated.’ But, also, we will make the technology as easy and accessible as possible.”
Mr Morgan has regularly taken aim at anti-vaxxers, mocking them for their refusal to take a jab.
He said on Twitter: “Imagine telling your grandkids in 40 years when they asked what you did in the War on Covid.
“‘Well, I refused to wear a mask, refused to take a vaccine & ignored lockdown rules – putting many lives at risk!’”
The GMB host has also praised vaccine development, hailing Moderna’s jab candidates’ 94 percent efficacy in developing immunity from coronavirus.
The GMB jab promise comes after the UK secured another 2 million doses of a coronavirus vaccine, this time from Moderna.
Moderna’s jab, after it was found to be 94 percent effective, is expected to be sent to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency soon.
Oxford’s vaccine and the US and German-made Pfizer and BioNTech candidate have already been submitted to the drug regulator.
NHS England has since been told to get ready to distribute vaccines as early as December 7.
