Katie Price has urged everyone to get the coronavirus vaccine, despite her son Harvey having a reaction to the jab.

The 42 year old’s eldest son Harvey, 18, was taken to hospital on Saturday 6 February after he was given the Oxford/Astrazeneca injection the day before.

Katie soon updated her fans to reveal Harvey, who recently landed his dream opportunity as a Network Rail station announcer, was home and well.

Speaking while sat next to her beloved son in a clip posted on her Instagram story, Katie said: “Harvey is all good, so because of Harvey’s complex needs and the complex medication he’s on he had his Covid – the Oxford one – and just had a reaction and the reaction was really, really high temperature, 39.9C and obviously with Harvey I’ve got to really keep an eye on him and I couldn’t get his temperature down.

“So, I phoned Great Ormond Street and they told me to go to the nearest A&E, that’s what we did.”

She later added: “Everything was fine they just said it was a reaction from the Covid [injection] but today he’s absolutely on form.

“And the doctors and nurses were fantastic! So I can’t wait to still have my Covid injection and I still recommend everyone else have it.”

Katie is further pushing the message to insist her son is fine. She told The Sun: “I am in awe of the NHS – they are amazing, without them Harvey would not be here today.

“I don't want anyone worrying about him as he’s fine now at home eating carrot cake. Despite Harvey's reaction, he is one of a kind, the Covid jab is so important especially for those in high risk categories.

“I am so much happier in the knowledge Harvey is safer now he has had his.”

While Katie’s representative urged the NHS to consider monitoring people with rare health conditions 24 hours once they receive the vaccine.

The representative added to the publication: “Katie would like the medical authorities to consider those with complex and rare conditions should be vaccinated under strict medical supervision and monitored for 24hrs as their immune systems can react differently.

“Treatment can then be administered immediately. This would be subject to the resources being made available for this.”

Mum of five Katie’s son Harvey has a number of health conditions including Prader-Willi syndrome, septo-optic dysplasia, diabetes inspipidus, autism, attention deficit disorder and oppositional defiance disorder which causes aggression.

She is also mum Junior and Princess, who she shares with ex husband Peter Andre, as well as Jett and Bunny, who she shares with former husband Kieran Hayler.
