“It was a quick jab then back to work for me!” he added.
“Full disclosure I was given a star sticker for having the vaccine and being a good boy 🤪,” Alex said.
Fans flooded the comment section with kind words of praise for the healthcare professional, who has used his social media platform to inform followers about how to stay safe during the pandemic.

The news comes after the reality star admitted he found being on the frontline for a second time “tough” during an appearance on Monday’s Lorraine show.
“There’s growing pressures, growing numbers, I think there’s a great concern how many patients are being admitted to hospital,” he explained.
“Having that light at the end of the tunnel, you can feel that in the work place. Back in March and April, we didn’t know when this would end.”
