The pandemic has raged on for over a year, and finally the COVID-19 vaccine is becoming available around the world, but not without its controversies.
Morgan Freeman just recorded a coronavirus PSA to encourage Americans to get vaccinated. “I’m not a doctor, but I trust science. And I’m told that, for some reason, people trust me,” Freeman says in the video by arts advocacy group The Creative Coalition and the National Blue Ribbon Task Force. “So here I am to say I trust science and I got the vaccine. If you trust me, you’ll get the vaccine. In math, it’s called the distributive property. In people, it’s called taking care of one another.”
There are plans in place to get those most at risk of the coronavirus vaccinated first, but there are also reports of Hollywood's elite trying to jump the line. Additionally, the safety of the vaccine has been a hot topic, as some people still aren't sure whether they will take it. The problem is that herd immunity only works if the majority of the population gets vaccinated.
Plenty of stars are trying to do their part. There are many famous faces who have proudly gotten the vaccine to help encourage others not to be afraid. And, of course, many beloved celebs are also in the at-risk age range!
