Ruth Langsford, 60, received her first jab last month. At the time, she told her followers: "JUST HAD MY VACCINE!! Feel SO grateful. Thought it was a scam message at first as I wasn’t expecting to be called until March!

"Thank you everybody, staff & volunteers, at the vaccination centre in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey...a quick, well organised and very friendly experience. The jab took seconds and was painless. Thank you @stephanieshervington for being so lovely....you & your colleagues are doing an amazing job.

"Another step forward to being able to see my Mum again I hope. Thank you @nhsengland @astrazeneca @oxford_uni #covid #vaccine."
