Nobody is exempt from the possibility of contracting the deadly virus known as COVID-19. As actor Chris Rock found out recently, it’s a force of nature and he urges fans to get vaccinated.
According to Yahoo!, the fully vaccinated 56-year-old comedian informed his Twitter followers that he had contracted the virus. “I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated,” he tweeted.
The former star of Saturday Night Live didn’t specify if he contracted the Delta variant. During a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May 2021, he revealed that he received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, a single-dose vaccine. “The food stamps of vaccines,” Rock said.
Rock joked, “I used my celebrity, Jimmy. I Did Pootie Tang, let me in the front of the line.”
At the top of this year, Rock did an in-depth interview with Gayle King, where he said he “can’t wait” to get the vaccine.
We wish him a speedy recovery!
