JUDAS PRIEST‘s Rob Halford has just received his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
On Monday (March 22), the 69-year-old singer, who lives in Phoenix, Arizona, took to his social media to share a photo of him holding his “Vaccination Record Card” while sitting in his car, and he wrote in an accompanying message: “‘done’ #heavymetal #ink #tattoo #metal #motivation #boost #selfcare #maniacs #staypositive #community #defender #you #me #us #love #family #friends #fans #one #world #peace #respect #all”.
A recent poll from the Pew Research Center showed that more than two-thirds of U.S. adults plan on getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
The poll, released earlier in the month, found that 69 percent of adults say they are going to receive the coronavirus vaccine.
The Pew poll showed that 19% of adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine, 32% say they will definitely get the vaccine and 17% say they will probably get it.
The nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has estimated that about 70-85% of Americans would need to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity.
America’s two main vaccines have shown 95% efficacy against the coronavirus.
As of late January, the CDC discovered that only 11 per 1 million people experienced severe reactions from the Pfizer vaccine, and only 2.5 per 1 million people who received the Moderna dose.
Johnson & Johnson‘s vaccine, which became available in the United States earlier this month after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave it emergency use authorization, was tested with new variants of COVID-19, and has shown to be effective against them; Pfizer and Moderna were tested prior to the emergence of these variants.
