Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “PM Boris Johnson praises vaccines while meeting Brazil’s unvaccinated president Jair Bolsonaro” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson urged Brazil’s anti-vaxxer President Jair Bolsonaro to get the AstraZeneca vaccine during a meeting at the British Consulate General’s residence in New York on Monday. The Prime Minister told the right-wing populist that AstraZeneca was a ‘great vaccine’ and that he had received two doses himself. But Mr Bolsonaro wagged his finger at the Conservative leader and responded ‘not yet’. Last year, Mr Bolsonaro was met with criticism after he lashed out at coronavirus vaccines and claimed the Pfizer jab could turn people into crocodile and also lead to women growing facial hair.
