Queen 'to get Covid vaccine in weeks': Monarch, 94, will 'wait in line' for over-80s roll-out with Prince Philip, 99, before revealing she has had the jab to boost take-up

The Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, (left) will not get preferential treatment, but will instead 'wait in line' during the first wave of injections (file image, inset) reserved for the over-80s and care home residents, senior sources said. Both are expected to accept the offer of the injection on the advice of their doctors. Public health experts believe that if the couple go public about the jab, it could go a long way to combating misinformation spread by conspiracy theorists which, it's feared, could lead to a substantial proportion of the population refusing the vaccine.
