In a recent virtual interview on a British talk show, Ozzy Osbourne revealed that he’d gotten the coronavirus vaccine while still battling Parkinson’s Disease. His wife joined him in the interview.
On February 12, 2021, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne appeared remotely on “Loose Women.” The couple featured from the comfort of their home’s bedroom that was decorated with what seemed to be rose petals.
Sharon wore a gray pajama top and pants while her husband was topless and without his trademark makeup. A red teddybear was also propped up on the bed, and the couple’s dogs also snuggled in.
The pair started by discussing how it was to be in lockdown while they were in Los Angeles. “The Talk’s” co-host revealed that everything was boarded up, like the restaurants and boutiques.
Sharon, 68, also noted how many homeless people were visible in the streets more than before the lockdown. She admitted how depressing it all was for all of them.
The star confessed how the lockdown was affecting them badly, including their nine-year-old grandchild. Ozzy, 72, revealed that he’d already gotten his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
He was asked what it felt like to get the medicine that could hopefully help him lead a normal life. The rock star jokingly confessed that the injection felt like he was being stabbed in his arm.
He shared that his arm was sore the previous day but that he was happy to have gotten it. The co-hosts then asked the singer if he felt relieved after he’d gotten the vaccine, and Ozzy responded:
"As soon as I got it, I felt relieved.”
When asked what was happening with her dose, Sharon revealed that she wasn’t going to get it for at least two more weeks. However, because she caught the virus in December 2020, she was still safe.
Last year Ozzy had to postpone his plans for a solo tour because he had to go to Switzerland for treatments.
She explained that she was informed that she still had a lot of antibodies that would last for another six weeks. Ozzy revealed he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease last year in January.
The Black Sabbath vocalist said he found out about the diagnosis after suffering a fall in February 2019. Last year he had to postpone his plans for a solo tour because he had to go to Switzerland for treatments.
