Morgan Freeman: ‘If you trust me, you’ll get the vaccine’
Morgan Freeman says if you trust him, you’ll take his advice and get vaccinated against COVID-19.
“I’m not a doctor, but I trust science. And I’m told that, for some reason, people trust me,” the “Vanquish” star says in a public service announcement released Monday by the arts advocacy group The Creative Coalition.
Freeman, 83, has played God in multiple films and is a popular choice for narrating documentaries and science specials.
“So here I am to say I trust science and I got the vaccine,” he tells viewers in the PSA.
“If you trust me, you’ll get the vaccine,” Freeman adds.
“In math, it’s called the distributive property. In people, it’s called taking care of one another.”
Urging Americans to “get the vaccine,” Freeman adds it will “help make our world a safe place for us to enjoy ourselves again.”
The Academy Award winner is one of many high-profile performers who have thrown their support behind coronavirus vaccination efforts. Last month, singer Dolly Parton shared a video of her shot, encouraging her fans to get the vaccine in an effort to return to “normal.” Carole King, Tyler Perry and Mariah Carey are just some of the entertainers who have used their platforms to push for getting the vaccine.
