House of Horrors monster Rose West has reportedly been given the Covid vaccine ahead of frontline staff.
The 67-year-old serial killer was given it last week after being deemed "extremely vulnerable", a source told The Sun.
She was said to be included in the roll-out to those shielding ahead of frontline staff at HMP New Hall and millions of Brits.
The source said: "Why can’t West wait until they’ve at least started vaccinating some over-65s who aren’t serving life for murdering ten people?
"Rose is hugely overweight, getting older and has been locked up for years.
"Her health isn’t great and she’s undoubtedly at greater risk of Covid than many on the outside.
"But does that really mean she should be the first in the queue?"
Sources insisted prisoners would not get their jabs in line with priority lists and no faster than the public.
A government spokesman said: "Prisoners are being vaccinated at the same time as the general public and in line with the priority groups set out by the independent Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.”
Piers for PM? Have your say!
The Daily Star has projected an image of Piers Morgan onto the Houses of Parliament – and we’re asking you are we ready for #PMFORPM?
Last week the Daily Star jokingly asked the question on nobody’s lips: Would PM be a better PM than our current PM?
And it seems we may have inadvertently unleashed a monster. Shy and retiring Piers – no stranger to holding our politicians to account on Good Morning Britain – leapt on the idea.
His odds were slashed from 500/1 to just 20/1 in a single day.
So, are you Team Piers or Team Bozo? Take part in our survey!
Rose West given Covid jab invite in prison and will get vaccine 'in weeks'
West and husband Fred abducted, raped and murdered a string of young women before burying them in their Gloucester House of Horrors between 1973 and 1987.
Fred was charged with 12 murders but killed himself before his trial.
Convicted of ten murders, Rose was reportedly vaccinated at 5pm on Monday.
The source added: "She suffered quite a bad reaction. There were lots of flu-like symptoms and she took to her bed."

West is said to be paranoid about catching Covid. She has piled on the pounds in recent years after gorging on cakes and chocolate.
Meanwhile, over-65s are still to receive letters inviting to get the jab – set to start next week.
Sources told The Sun that West also has failing eyesight and struggles with stairs making her equal in status to those shielding.

But many in that group haven't received their jab either.
Mark, from Tottenham, North London, hit out on Twitter saying: "I’m shielding, letter runs out 21st Feb. I’m in the top 4 groups to be vaccinated by Monday. Still heard nothing."
Killer Katrina Walsh, 60, serving life for the 2016 murder of Lancashire PR consultant Sadie Hartley, was also jabbed.
The evil pair received Astra- Zeneca’s jab rather than Pfizer’s, which is difficult to use in prisons given it needs to be kept at -70C.
It comes after jailed pop paedo Gary Glitter, 76, got his jab last month.
His jab was as part of the wider rollout to over-75s.
