17 Famous People Who Got A COVID-19 Vaccine, And 7 Who Absolutely Refuse To

From Britney Spears to Samuel L. Jackson.

Editors note: COVID-19 vaccines have been rigorously tested and shown to be safe and effective. The views shared by some people in this post are harmful and are not supported by scientific evidence. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can save your life and the lives of your loved ones, helping to end the pandemic.

A few days ago, I took a look at celebrities who have made anti-vax statements in the past. And that got me wondering, "Where do celebs currently stand on the COVID vaccine?"

In December 2020, TMZ asked the Migos rapper if he would be getting the vaccine. "I don't trust it," he replied.

Two months ago, Offset said that he still hasn't been vaccinated while on the radio show The Breakfast Club. "I'm not tryna be a lab rat, man," he said, despite the fact that the vaccines were tested in large-scale clinical trials, endorsed by the FDA, and have been given to more than 200 million Americans.

In December 2020, the younger brother of Gigi and Bella Hadid hosted a Q&A on Instagram. He told his fans he would "absolutely not" get the vaccine. "Either I just don’t get [COVID], or I get it and, god willing, heal from it and get antibodies rather than do that process unnaturally."

"Our bodies are made by the creator to do way more than we think," he added. But unvaccinated people who get COVID-19 are 29 times more likely to be hospitalized than people who are vaccinated, according to a recent CDC study. Unvaccinated people make up an overwhelming percentage of people in the US dying of COVID-19.

Good news/Bad news. Good news: I just got vaccinated! Bad news: I got it because I’m 75. Ha! The operation in NYC was smooth as silk (sorry about the cliché @BCDreyer!) and hosted to perfection by the US Army and National Guard. Thank you all, and thank you science.

A few weeks ago, the infamous son of beloved actor Tom Hanks (who was one of the first celebrities to share his own COVID-19 diagnosis in 2020) shared a video on Instagram. He pretended to encourage fans to get the vaccine and then yelled, "Psych!"

"Bitch!" he continued. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it! I never had COVID. Y'ain't sticking me with that motherfucking needle!"

Again: despite what some of these celebrities have said, the COVID vaccines are proven to be safe. To learn more about the safety of COVID vaccines, you can check out the CDC's website. Listen to the CDC, not Chet.
