Nearly all deaths due to COVID-19 have been in unvaccinated people. While the COVID vaccines do not completely prevent infection, vaccinated individuals have a far greater chance of having milder infections and not requiring hospitalization.
"Trust me, you don't want this. Actor-comedian Chris Rock tweeted Sunday that he has COVID-19. Get vaccinated," he urged.
"I was like, ‘Step aside, Betty White. I didn’t care. I used my celebrity, Jimmy," he told Fallon. Step aside, old people. Kiss my ass! I did ‘Pootie Tang.’ Let me on the front of the line.'" He joked to Fallon, "You know, I skipped the line.
Do I know what's in Tylenol? Yes. I just know my headache's gone. I don't know what's in Tylenol, Gayle. I just know it's delicious." In a January interview with Gayle King, Rock said "Let me put it this way: Do I take Tylenol when I get a headache? Do I know what's in a Big Mac, Gayle? No.
Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated.

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 still-untitled film is set to be released next year. 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.
I don't want to be Leo at the bottom of the ocean. Billy Zane lived to see another day. Billy Zane got another woman after that! You don't want to be Leo. Comparing it to the movie "Titanic," he said, "I was like Billy Zane on the Titanic. Well, in real life you want to be Leo." Leo died! "That's the food stamps of vaccines," he joked about the Johnson & Johnson shot.
