Kate Winslet’s 81-year-old father Roger has had the coronavirus vaccine.

The actress shared that he has ben given the first dose and described it as a ‘relief’.

In an interview on the podcast WTF with Marc Maron, she discussed with host Marc the vaccine rollout in their respective countries.

She said: ‘At the moment they are, as quickly as they can, vaccinating the over 90s and over 80s and key workers and healthcare workers.

‘My father has had his vaccination, he’s 81. That feels like a huge relief.

‘He’s had his first dose. I don’t know when… we still wait our turn I think.’

The Titanic star went on to recall a dream she had about getting the vaccine only for it not to work.

‘I did dream that I got vaccinated and that it didn’t work,’ she said.

‘I dreamt that they had done the vaccination, the needle had gone into my arm but only half of the vial had gone in and they had taken the needle out and the liquid was squirting all over me and all over the floor, and then no one seemed to know how to cope with it, what to do.

‘They couldn’t work whether they should re-vaccinate me just half a vial, whether they should just discount that one and do the whole thing all over again.

‘It was very anxious making, because nobody knew what the protocol was and that’s what I found really scary.’

She joked that she had been dreaming about ‘the whole world’ as the global pandemic continues.

The Health Secretary confirmed on Sunday that more than half of Britain’s over-80s have now been given the coronavirus jab.

Celebrities aged over 80 who have had the vaccine so far include Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Tom Jones and Dame Judi Dench.
