Laura Hamilton, 39, was forced to pull out of a breast cancer awareness event after having a sudden reaction to her second coronavirus vaccination. The A Place In The Sun presenter shared a selfie taken on what appeared to be a hospital ward, as she kept her mask firmly on in compliance with Covid regulations.
Laura explained: “Was suppose to be @corinthialondon for a breast cancer afternoon tea…
“Instead I’m in A&E after a reaction to the second covid jab! #itp @concordemedialondon.”
Laura is back home in the UK after wrapping filming on episodes of A Place In The Sun in Portugal last week.
She had her first Covid jab just over a month ago, explaining she was having it earlier than some the same age due to an underlying health condition.

“I’m currently sat in my car. I’ve got to wait for 10 minutes because I’ve just had my first COVID-19 jab. The Oxford jab.
“And I have to sit here and wait 10 minutes before I can drive anywhere,” Laura explained.
“A few people have already asked me why I’ve had the jab because I’m not in my 50s.
“I’m not in my 40s, yet,” she continued, in view of her 122,000 followers.

“I got a message from the NHS because I have an underlying health condition.
“I do know a few of you on here are aware that I have something called ITP, which is where I have a low platelet account in my blood,” she said.
Explaining how the condition affected her, Laura went on to say: “It means I can bruise pretty badly and when Tahlia was just seven months old I had a really bad outburst of it and that’s how I became aware of ITP.
“It’s an autoimmune deficiency disease.
“So that’s why I’m here and that is why I’ve had my first vaccination, so there you go.
“And it wasn’t all that bad at all,” she reassured fans.
Laura has previously spoken on how at first she was concerned that bruises on her body were being caused by her diet before her diagnosis.
“I was always someone who bruised quite easily anyway, but it was more than normal,” she told The Mirror.
