Channel Nine news anchor Deborah Knight has revealed that her son, Darcy, has received his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

She shared a photo on Instagram on Wednesday of Darcy receiving his first Pfizer shot, after vaccine reservations were made available for children ages 12 to 15 this week.

Her 12-year-old son rolled up his sleeve and appeared to be smiling under his face mask as a health worker gave him the injection.

“Mr Darcy down first,” the journalist, 48, wrote proudly in the caption, using the hashtag #GetVaccinated.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) recommended that children ages 12 and older receive the Pfizer vaccine from Sept. 13.

It comes after Deborah revealed that her five-year-old daughter, Audrey, had been classified as a close Covid-19 contact after a positive case was diagnosed at her school.

Deborah was isolated with her daughter in the granny flat of their house last month and hosted her driving time radio show on 2GB from there, reported 9Honey.

“A five-year-old can’t isolate on her own; an adult has to deal with her,” she told listeners, adding that her husband, Lindsay, was in another part of their house with their older children, Darcy and Elsa, 10.

The family of five then all tested negative for Covid twice and then moved in together again.
