Comedian Chris Rock tests positive for COVID-19

 

Chris Rock has tested positive for COVID-19, the comedian announced Sunday.


"Hey guys I just found out I have COVID, trust me you don’t want this," 


Rock tweeted Sunday. "Get vaccinated." 

Rock, 56, previously received the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine, he told Jimmy Fallon in May. USA TODAY has reached out to his representatives for more information. 


A key federal advisory committee on Friday recommended a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine six months after full vaccination for people 65 and older and those at high risk of severe COVID-19. There isn’t yet sufficient evidence to show boosters for people under 65 are necessary, said members of the Food and Drug Administration’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.
