Chris Rock Reveals He Has COVID, Urges ‘Get Vaccinated’

Chris Rock tweeted Sunday that he has COVID-19.

“Trust me, you don’t want this. Get vaccinated,” he urged.

via Variety:

Rock told Jimmy Fallon in May that he had gotten the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, meaning his current case would be a breakthrough instance of coronavirus.

The actor, 56, recently starred in “Saw” sequel “Spiral” and will appear in David O. Russell’s next movie, a period film which shot in Los Angeles in early 2021. The still-untitled film is set to be released next year.

While the COVID vaccines do not completely prevent infection, vaccinated individuals have a far greater chance of having milder infections and not requiring hospitalization. Nearly all deaths due to COVID-19 have been in unvaccinated people.

We hope he has a smooth recovery!
