John Legend is doing his best to get the word out there. The chart topper wants everyone to get their Covid-19 vaccines in order for us all to finally move on from the pandemic.
The singer is teaming up with Walgreens for their ‘This Is Our Shot’ campaign, which is urging Americans everywhere that getting the vaccine is perhaps the only way we can help bring an end to the year-long coronavirus pandemic.
In a new video to kick off the campaign, John told pharmacist Stephen Fadowele about why getting vaccinated is important to him.
John Legend Wants Americans To Get Vaccinated
“I’ve just been watching what’s been going on in the nation and around the world. So many communities and families and lives have been disrupted by this virus and all the precautions we had to take to avoid getting it,” he said.
“The scientists have done such quick and powerful work in experimenting and developing these vaccines that are actually effective at preventing the spread of this virus. Now that that’s happened, and these vaccines are widely available for the nation and the world, it is such beautiful, powerful thing.”
John, who shares his two children Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, with his wife Chrissy Teigen, added that he wants “to make sure as many people take advantage of this opportunity as possible, because that’s the ticket to us getting back together.”
“That’s the ticket to us having concerts again, family reunions, barbeques, all of the things we’ve been missing out on,” he said. “I think so many people have been missing out on that touch, that human contact, and just being able to enjoy it without having in the back of your mind, ‘I might get sick from this,’ or, ‘I might pass this sickness on to someone in my family that’s vulnerable.'”
“Having that hanging over your head for an entire year has been a tough thing for so many people,” Legend added. “The vaccine is our shot to get past that.”
