Here's the Good and Bad News Steve Martin, 75, Revealed about His Recent COVID-19 Vaccination
Steve Martin shared both good and bad news with fans relating to his recent COVID-19 vaccination on Twitter.
Steve Martin, 75, shared on Twitter that he had both good and bad news about his recent experience receiving a COVID-19 vaccination.
Martin regularly tries to make the pandemic humourous by posting jokes about wearing masks. For example, his Twitter profile picture features the actor wearing two masks; covering his entire face.
This week, he shared he had received the vaccination, and of course, he took the opportunity to get a laugh or two with his announcement on his Twitter page.
He shared that he had both good and bad news to share. The good news was that he had received the vaccination. However, the bad news was that it was because he was old. Part of his tweet read:
"Good news/Bad news. Good news: I just got vaccinated! Bad news: I got it because I’m 75."
He wrote that the "operation" in New York City was running smoothly and that it was perfectly hosted by the US army and the National Coast Guard.
He ended the tweet by thanking everyone and science. His tweet has gathered over 100,000 likes so far. This is not the only tweet of his making light of the pandemic.
Martin is not the only celebrity to have received the vaccine.
Good news/Bad news. Good news: I just got vaccinated! Bad news: I got it because I’m 75. Ha! The operation in NYC was smooth as silk (sorry about the cliché @BCDreyer!) and hosted to perfection by the US Army and National Guard. Thank you all, and thank you science.— Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo) January 17, 2021
In September last year, the "Cheaper By The Dozen" actor shared a tweet that said he felt anxious and unsettled about wearing a mask as others might not recognize him.
He figured out how to rectify the situation, which involved creating a headpiece out of paper that had his name above his head with arrows pointing down at him. The tweet read:
"Something about [wearing a mask] was leaving me anxious and unsettled. I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution."
I always wear a mask when I go outside. But something about it was leaving me anxious and unsettled. I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution. pic.twitter.com/aUW4jHI3dX— Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo) September 12, 2020
Martin is well known for his comedy movies such as "The Pink Panther" and "Cheaper by the Dozen," where he played the father to 12 children.
Martin is not the only celebrity to have received the vaccine and share it on social media to quell skepticism as to the vaccine rolls out across the globe.
Currently, only older celebrities had shared that they were able to receive the vaccine. Celebrities such as Judy Dench, Willie Nelson, and Sir Ian McKellen have been vaccinated.
On January 9, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip both received the vaccine and made the news public dispel speculation about whether they had received it.
