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.
