Emily Andrea has defended the Government over their handling of the coronavirus crisis, saying she thinks “our vaccinations efforts have been incredible”.

Writing exclusively in her OK! Magazine column, Emily opened up about appearing on Good Morning Britain alongside her husband Peter Andre to talk about his recovery from coronavirus and the vaccine rollout.

She said: “I loved being on Good Morning Britain with Pete. I do like how Piers Morgan always says it how it is and I enjoy watching his interviews, but then that also made me wonder what questions he would ask me!

But it was a great interview and both Piers and Susanna Reid were so nice."

The NHS doctor continued: “I hope I got the message across about the vaccine. Whatever the comments are about how the Government has handled the pandemic, you can’t deny that our vaccination efforts have been incredible.

"They are hoping every adult will be vaccinated by September and currently we are way ahead of many other countries in terms of the number of vaccines given.”

Over 6.3 million people in the UK have now received their first dose of the vaccine.

The 31 year old also confirmed in her column that she was just about to receive her first dose of the vaccine “in a couple days”, something she called “great”.

Emily also weighed in on the debate about whether or not it is safe to delay having the second dose of the vaccination.

Revealing she’s think it is better to give a greater number of people a good level of protection than some have none at all, she said: “Your immunity is of course boosted further after two doses, but is it not better that we vaccinate as many people as possible rather than give half the amount of people a higher level of immunity?

"One dose gives you a good level of protection and even after one dose the research suggests that your chance of getting seriously unwell from coronavirus is massively reduced.

"If you get one or two doses it still cannot protect you 100% from catching the virus, but for me it’s about doing the best thing for the greatest number of people."

Emily admitted she is happy to wait her turn for her second dose and let others who have not yet received their first dose go before her.

“I’m happy to wait for my second dose because I don’t think it’s fair for me to have two doses and someone else miss out on having one," she added.
