Hollywood star Chris Rock tests positive for COVID-19 months after vaccination
Hollywood actor and comedian, Chris Rock, has tested positive for Covid-19 months after receiving the vaccine.
The 'Everybody Hates Chris' while shared the news on Sunday and urged the public to get vaccinated.
"Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated," he told his 5.2million Twitter followers.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in May, the 56-year-old, according to UK Metro, revealed that he had been inoculated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Rock had shown support for the Covid vaccination program earlier this year.
Speaking to Gayle King on CBS Sunday Morning in January, the comic explained: "Let me 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."
However, after receiving two doses of the J&J vaccine, Rock said, "I’m two-shots Rock, that’s what they call me."
He also joked that he’d cut in line at the vaccine centre, adding: ‘I didn’t care. I used my celebrity, Jimmy. I was like, “Step aside, Betty White, I did Pootie Tang. Step aside, old people”.
