Glam Miss England winner who left modelling to work for NHS gets Covid jab
Miss England winner Bhasha Mukherjee has received her first dose of the Covid vaccine so she can continue to work on the NHS front line.
The 24-year-old returned from India to the UK to answer the Government's call for help back in April.
She has stayed in the country ever since and worked tirelessly at Boston Pilgrim Hospital in Lincolnshire and Derby Royal Hospital.
Bhasha this week received her Pfizer vaccine so she can carry on her work against the virus.
The beauty queen said it's "good to know" she is protected and said she wanted to "cherish the moment" with a picture.
She said: "It's good to know I'm protected and I'm sure my colleagues feel the same.
"When I walked over to my allocated nurse, I asked nervously if I could have a photo taken as I wanted to cherish the moment.
"She told me I was the first one to ask for a photo so far but of course I could have one.
"I'm thankful as being BAME, I'm in a high-risk group. I was so excited but also nervous."
Bhasha said she was so excited to get the vaccine she was "jumping on her seat" just before she was jabbed.
Miss England said the vaccine "didn't hurt" and a few hours she even did "a zoom home workout" and press-ups to "celebrate."
She said: "It didn't hurt and after a few hours, I even did a zoom home workout press-ups and all to celebrate. I have been perfectly well since.
"I feel so grateful to be in the position to have received the vaccine when millions are in the waiting line across the globe.
"My prayers are with everyone who's waiting patiently at home including my own family members who I hope will get their vaccines soon too."

Bhasha was crowned Miss England in July 2019 and in 2020, she became the longest serving winner in the Miss England's 92-year history after Covid stopped the competition going forward.
She said the crisis has been a far cry from the glitz and glamour of the pageant but is glad she managed to juggled work with her Miss England duties.

She said: "It's been an honour to continue serving my country during the Covid pandemic as well as being able to do it as Miss England.
"There's no better time for me to be Miss England while helping England at this time of need.
"It has been tough for everyone and while I was doing my charity work abroad I just wanted to be back home helping my colleagues.
"I've still been doing plenty of charity work remotely and being able to do that and serve the nation at the same time has been really special.
"It's a shame the Miss England contest was postponed again but I'm delighted to be their longest-serving winner."
