Hackney doctors have filmed a video to encourage residents to take the Covid-19 vaccination when they are approached by the NHS. 

The video shows Dr Jacob Opat, from Cranwich Road Surgery in Stamford Hill, receiving a vaccine administered by Dr Cerian Choi.

The doctors hope the footage will encourage more people to get the jab when contacted by the NHS.

In the video, Dr Opat said: "I'm very excited for this moment. I have no fear at all and I am looking forward to having [the vaccine] - doing my bit to fight this terrible infection."

After getting his shot, the doctor proclaimed: "That was it?"

Coronavirus vaccinations started to be rolled out in Hackney on December 16, 2020.
