Alison Moyet got the jab.

The powerhouse British singer and former Yazoo frontwoman broke a self-imposed Twitter exile to share the news.

“Hello chums!,” reads her first tweet in four months. “I’m on a determined Twitter dry-out so won’t stop, but thought I’d celebrate having my #AstraZeneca vaccine at The Brighton Centre yesterday. Brilliant efficient service & a warm reception for all. Grateful for the Givers of this world.”

Moyet’s return to social media is nothing short of a public health appeal. Her message comes as officials, doctors and scientists in the U.K. urge Britons to get vaccinated, despite mounting skepticism on the Continent about potential side-effects.

According to the BBC, some 13 countries have halted the rollout of the vaccine as they seek further clarification on its safety. The U.K.’s medicines watchdog, the MHRA, insists the evidence “does not suggest” the jab causes clots.

About 17 million people across the U.K. and Europe have had a dose of the vaccine, including Moyet.

The English singer and songwriter has enjoyed a glittering career, which has yielded two No. 1 albums in the U.K., and a pair of Brit Awards for best female artist.

In the late noughts, Moyet briefly reunited with Vince Clarke for a Yazoo tour, their short-lived but hugely influential ‘80s synth-pop outfit. Moyet’s most recent solo album, Other, dropped in 2017 and peaked at No. 12 in the U.K.
