This Morning’s Ruth Langsford has had the coronavirus vaccine aged 61

She said she was shocked to be invited to receive the vaccine, believing she was too young to be offered it now.

Ruth told viewers: “I’m 61 – I thought ‘This is too early.’ I called my surgery and they say no, no that’s absolutely right.

“It was amazingly well organised. It was quick, it was painless. I feel very lucky.”

However, many fans were stunned at her age – believing her to be ten years younger.

One tweeted: “Wait… Ruth is 61 ?! Thought 50, fair play.”

Another wrote: “I can’t believe Ruth is 61!! She looks great.”

Explaining she thought her offer to get the vaccine was fake because of her age, she said she had no side effects.

She wrote on Instagram: “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.”

Currently, more than three million vaccination doses are being given a week – more than 400,000 are being given out every day.

Invitations are now being sent to the three million people aged over 65 years old, with the aim of reaching everyone over 50 by the end of April.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News: “The letters have already been sent to over a million over 65-year-olds asking them to come forward, and also the next group after that is those who have underlying health conditions and are carers.”
