Chris Rock has COVID-19. This, after receiving the vaccination shot earlier this year, which makes this a breakthrough case.
Chris Rock Urges Followers To Get Vaccinated
Chris Rock has tested positive for the Coronavirus.
Revealing his diagnosis on his Twitter account, the 56-year old comedian has an urgent message for his followers –
“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID…trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated!”
Rock appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon back in May of this year.
During that appearance, he let it be known that he had received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
In January, the Fargo actor was interviewed by Gayle King and stated that some people have trepidations about taking the shot.
However, Chris Rock always took the pandemic very seriously.
His view is –
“I’m gonna put it this way — Do I take Tylenol when I get a headache? Yes.”
“Do I know what’s in Tylenol? I don’t know what’s in Tylenol, Gayle. I just know my headache’s gone.”
“Do I know what’s in a Big Mac, Gayle? No. I just know it’s delicious.”
Although no vaccine is 100% effective, breakthrough cases are rare.
But even so, the chances of being hospitalized or actually dying during a breakthrough case are extremely rare.
Be smart. Be safe. Get Vaccinated!
