A source said: “NHS England are looking for famous faces, people who are known and loved.
“It could be celebrities who are very sensible and have done sensible stuff during the pandemic.”
Politicians are off the cards, the source added.
It has already been suggested that Her Majesty will be tasked with bolstering the nation’s faith in the vaccine.
The push comes amid growing fears Brits won’t take the life-changing jab as antivaxxers continue to spout and spread dangerous misinformation.
It’s not clear how this information has changed in light of the recent breakthroughs at Astrazenica/Oxford, Pfeizer and Moderna.
Just yesterday, NHS chiefs told hospitals to brace for a coronavirus vaccine in as little as seven days’ time – with staff set to be at the front of the queue.
NHS bosses said hospitals in England could expect their first vaccine deliveries from Pfizer-BionTech as early as December 7.
According to hospital sources, NHS England said they should expect to get stocks of the vaccine on December 7, 8 or 9.
