Sir Elton John teams up with Sir Michael Caine to encourage Brits to get their Covid jab
SIR Elton John and Sir Michael Caine have joined forces to encourage Brits to get their jab.
The showbiz legends recorded a 90-second film at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London, to promote vaccination.
The comedy clip shows Sir Elton, 73, “auditioning” for an advert promoting the jab.
The singer then pretends to get the vaccine before bursting in to his 1983 hit I’m Still Standing – leaving the film’s “director” unimpressed.
Sir Elton said: “I wanted to show people the benefits of getting vaccinated and how it helps protect ourselves and the people we love.
“I hope we can all come together and do our bit in the fight against this wretched disease.
“The more people in society who get vaccinated, the more chance there is of eradicating the national pandemic.”
Sir Michael, 87, said the vaccine “didn’t hurt”, adding: “Not many people know that.”
Sir Simon Stevens, CEO of the NHS, said: “We are grateful to Sir Elton and Sir Michael for helping the NHS promote vaccine uptake.”
