Kate Garraway left fuming as Boris Johnson's dad says getting second vaccine jab gives him 'get out of jail free card'

KATE Garraway fumed as Boris Johnson's dad suggested getting a second vaccine jab could give him "get out of jail free card".

The 53-year-old looked shocked when Stanley Johnson admitted he was unaware about the rules set by his Prime Minister son.

Talking about getting his booster jab this month on Good Morning Britain, Stanley said: "I am very much looking forward to it. I'm going to be fancy free after that.

"One thing that is not quite clear to me is what rules will apply to people who have [had both jabs], will we get a get out of jail free card?

"We'll still have to be locked down even though we've been notionally been released."

Cutting in, Kate "They have made that quite clear, Stanley.

"Your son has been saying this is not just carrying on in a care-free way because we don't know if the vaccine protects you from spreading the infection.

"And if it works, it could only be reducing the impact of symptoms, which is a huge thing, but still means you have to be very careful."

Talking about his slip-up, Kate's co-host Ben said: "We saw Stanley Johnson talking about what he has to do and how he has to behave – or not really knowing how he has to behave.

"Fortunately Kate put him right. He's the Prime Minister's son, but he didn't know, having had the second booster, what he can and can't do."

Explaining the rules in more detail, Dr Hilary Johnson insisted: "You still have to follow the social distancing rules and all the other guidelines because immunity isn't there for three weeks.

"You still have to be very careful, even after the vaccinations."

Kate's covid-stricken husband Derek Draper remains in intensive care and is now the country’s longest-fighting Covid-19 patient.

Derek has lost eight stone and Kate admitted her sadness at seeing how much he has changed.

She's been banned from visiting Derek in hospital – potentially for the next six weeks – because of the strict lockdown rules.
