Newstalk ZB's Mike Hosking decided to take the chance - and get his first Covid-19 vaccine over the weekend.

He booked his jab at the Epsom Vaccination Centre early on Sunday morning.

"The booking was super simple. And why not do it first thing on a Sunday morning, when there's literally no one around?" Hosking said.

He went through the process of getting registered, answering health and personal questions, to getting the information on the Pfizer vaccine.

Hosking described the process as "super easy."

As for the jab itself, he got it from nurse Anthea, and Hosking said "it was the biggest non-event."

He claimed it was less painful than getting a blood test.

The ZB host then did the obligatory 20 minute wait, just to check for any side effects.

He then got the all clear, and was off home to enjoy his Sunday. The whole appointment took just over half an hour.

So all in all, what did the Newstalk ZB host think of the overall experience?

"It's very well organised, it's very professional. The staff are very professional, very friendly and very nice," he said.

"There are no side effects. It is the easiest thing you can possibly do. And there's literally no pain if you're needle-phobic.
