The doctor is using his platform to tackle myths surrounding the vaccine, after conspiracy theorists have swamped social media with bizarre mistruths about the jab. 

In his videos, the doctor tells viewers that the only side effects he experienced were two days of a ‘little tiredness and mild throat glands’ and he urged others to ‘keep their community surviving’. 

Speaking of his TikTok videos, he told PinkNews he was keen to ‘drive more people to have the vaccine when eligible, also because I am a bit goofy and love dancing.’ 

He advised that the three major vaccines, Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca, have all been thoroughly tested and make the majority of those who have it immune to Covid-19.    

He added: ‘Whatever conspiracy theory you may have heard, please read the evidence yourself’.  

Fans have quickly commented calling the doctor's performance 'fierce', and saying that they'll be sure to get the Covid vaccination when it's their turn
