Fans flocked to the comments to praise the artists for receiving their vaccines and were so happy to see both happy and healthy. Neither artist revealed if it was the first or second shot. Both authorized vaccines require two shots for protection against COVID-19. As of now, it appears that front-line workers and older people are getting the vaccine first.
The two authorized vaccines are by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. The second dose is required about three weeks to one month after the first.
Will you get the vaccine when it is available to you?
