Chris Rock told his social media followers on Sunday that he is sick with Covid-19, and the comedian urged people to get vaccinated.
Mr. Rock didn’t elaborate on his symptoms, but his infection was a breakthrough case, meaning he got Covid despite being vaccinated. Breakthrough cases have become more common as the highly contagious Delta variant sweeps across the nation.
In May, the comic and actor appeared on “The Tonight Show” and told host Jimmy Fallon that he couldn’t wait to get vaccinated. “I’m two-shots Rock, that’s what they call me,” he said before clarifying that he received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a single dose.
He joked that he would have pushed aside his fellow actors to get the vaccine. “I used my celebrity, Jimmy,” Mr. Rock said. “I didn’t care. I was like, ‘Hey, step aside, Betty White.’ ”
