The popular Bachelor In Paradise star is the latest celebrity to get the COVID-19 jab.

Jackson and a mate went to a medical centre in Sydney’s Bondi Junction over the weekend to get their AstraZeneca vaccinations.

“This isn’t a post telling you what to do. This is a post on my page… about my story, my body, my choice,” he wrote on Instagram. 

“I’m confident in the information that has been presented to me about the effectiveness and benefits of this vaccine, which is why I rolled up my sleeve today.

In my own opinion, vaccines are there for public health. There’s a reason we live in a society with an absence of the mumps, the measles and rubella diseases (+ many more) and it wasn’t due to marching in the streets. ✌🏼”

Jackson, who appeared on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette, updated his followers on his progress 30 hours after getting the jab.

The 27-year-old told his 46,000 followers that he he hasn’t experienced “a single side effect”.

“No fatigue, no vomiting, no other symptoms of the flu. Perfectly fine,” he said.
