Ulrika Jonsson received her Covid vaccine this week

Sharing a picture of herself in a face mask and holding her vaccination card, the mum-of-four said: “This just happened.

“A) because I’m a celebrity; I badgered my local GP surgery and elbowed other more frail and more vulnerable people out of the way.

“Or B) because I am my daughter’s carer.”

She went on: “If you have negative thoughts, please keep them in your little mind.

The TV star explained it was because she was her daughter’s carer


Daughter Bo has a congenital heart defect


She received her own vaccine a few days before her mum

“I’m utterly grateful to all the people who have made these vaccines possible.

“My gratitude knows no bounds. I was terribly emotional. #vaccinated #huzzah.”

Ulrika’s oldest daughter Bo suffers from a congenital heart condition and received her own vaccination earlier this week.

But while many congratulated the Swedish star on getting the jab, others were not so pleased.

One said: “Please tell me why you have had yours? Doesn’t your daughter live in Bath where I live and train at Norland? In which case you are not her carer and should not qualify over others!”

To which Ulrika responded: “I’m my daughter’s carer. I questioned the call-up but they insisted and also I do not want to lock myself out of the system.”

Another added: “It isn’t a competition, however fame seems to get you a vaccine quicker! Nobody who I know who is classed as at risk has had their vaccine yet! I am simply stating facts and entitled to my opinion as are you!

“At the end of the day somebody who cares for their child 24/7 should have the vaccine before somebody who sees their child occasionally!”

Ulrika is mum to four children

But one fan said, echoing the thoughts of others: “It’s good news that you’re safe and anyone who doesn’t like it can keep schtum. Xxx”

The TV star wrote at the time of her daughter’s vaccination: “For all those with full hearts, functioning hearts, borrowed hearts, broken hearts and biologically faulty hearts, this has made my heart sing.

“Ungrateful with congenital heart defect has been vaccinated. And breathe….. ❤

‘Ungrateful’ is the nickname Ulrika gives to her four children.

As well as 21-year-old Bo, the TV presenter also mum to Cameron, 26, Martha, 16 and Malcolm, 12.
