Alyssa Milano talks ‘long-haul symptoms’ in new COVID-19 vaccine push
Alyssa Milano is making a push for coronavirus vaccinations, describing the longer-term symptoms she says she’s enduring from COVID-19.
“I got COVID,” the former “Charmed” actress says in a public service announcement (PSA) released Tuesday by arts advocacy nonprofit The Creative Coalition.
“I’m not sure when I will feel like myself again, and that’s hard for me to admit,” the 48-year-old actor says into the camera.
“So many others died, and yet, I’m lucky. I’m still here. But so are my long-haul symptoms.”
Milano revealed last year that she was hospitalized for complications due to COVID-19, saying she still had symptoms months later.
In Tuesday’s video, Milano encourages Americans to get vaccinated, saying the shots are “safe and effective.”
“I wish this vaccine had been around before so many of us had gotten sick,” she says. “It can keep you from getting critically ill.”
“This shot means that you can be there again with family, friends and neighbors,” the “Sorry Not Sorry” podcast host, a frequent critic of former President Trump, says. “This is your shot.”
