Chris Rock revealed on Twitter that he’s been diagnosed with COVID-19. He also urged anyone who hasn’t yet gotten vaccinated to do so.

“Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this. Get vaccinated,” he wrote.

He didn’t reveal if he’s feeling symptoms, but the virus has been hitting unvaccinated people hard and overwhelming the healthcare system.

Just a few days ago, Nas also disclosed that he battled the virus last year. “I caught COVID in late October,” Nas told Ebony. “This is the first time [I’m] mentioning it. It was a tough time. It was mentally and physically hard.”

He also touched on COVID has made this world a harder place to live in. “It’s just today’s world, with chemical warfare, crazy politics, racism, food shortages, police malpractice, Black-on-Black murder,” he continued. “The human spirit is being tested. I think that God has a plan for all of this. But right now, we’re in a serious time.”

While the two-dose vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna—and single-dose Johnson & Johnson—have been available to the public for some months now, Joe Biden was hoping to approve a third shot of the two-dose vaccines for adults. However, an independent FDA panel recently recommended against Pfizer booster shots for people 16 years of age and older.
