Collins ‘rushed’ to get vaccine

Joan Collins has said getting the Covid-19 jab was the "easiest thing" as she revealed she has "worn out the carpet" by keeping fit during lockdown.

The former Dynasty star (87) received the "painless" vaccination on Saturday.

"I really wanted to get it. I just wanted to tell anybody who's worried about it, there's nothing to worry about. It was the easiest thing," she told Good Morning Britain.

"It was just like a little scratch, there was no pain. I had no after-effects. I went home and had a drink.

"If you're advised by your GP to go, please go."

Collins said she "rushed" to get the vaccine after getting the call.

She told the show she found lockdown "pretty difficult" before channel- ling "how I was as a little tiny girl, during the war".


"We didn't have a television and we didn't have a lot of things, but I did a lot of reading, writing, painting, drawing," she said.

"I did a lot of things with my hands, and this is what I'm starting to do."

The actress has taken a novel approach to exer- cising.

"I don't like going for long walks when it's 3C," she said, "so I've been walking around our flat. I've worn out the carpet."

Asked if getting the jab was the best thing she has done since appearing in The Flintstones: Viva Rock Vegas, she said: "I would say it beats it hands down."
