The West Bromwich Albion 1968 FA Cup-winning captain, now aged 81 years old, has already received his vaccination.
He said: "It was absolutely nothing, there isn’t even a mark. Make sure you get your jab as soon as you are invited.
"It is really easy and painless – and it is our only way out of this terrible virus.”
Sandwell Council's deputy leader Councillor Maria Crompton, added: “It’s wonderful to have a local legend like Graham advocating the vaccine and he’s absolutely right – do make sure you take the opportunity when your turn comes.”
