Health chiefs believe that urging people to shout about getting vaccinated will help spread the message.

They will tell those who receive the jab that ‘sharing that you’ve done so will help encourage uptake in others’. 

The World Health Organisation has said that making uptake ‘visible’ will help to normalise having the vaccine.

In a report in October, its experts wrote: ‘If the majority of people are getting vaccinated, or intend to get vaccinated, that fact can be publicised to good effect.

‘Communication efforts to promote the perception that ‘most people are getting vaccinated’ – if credible and true – are likely to increase vaccination acceptance. 

Making vaccine uptake ‘visible’ to others, through clinics in prominent public places or by enabling ways for people to signal that they have received the vaccine, either on social media, in news media or in person, can contribute to making the social norm more salient.’

A string of celebrities have been photographed receiving the vaccine, including Sir Ian McKellen, 81, who said he felt 'euphoric' to be given the jab at Queen Mary's University Hospital in London

Prue Leith shared a photo of herself receiving the injection. The Great British Bake Off judge, 80, wrote: ‘Who wouldn’t want immunity from Covid-19?’

Entertainer Lionel Blair, 92, had his administered at an NHS vaccine centre at Epsom race course in Surrey. He said: ‘The whole thing means a great deal to me.’
