Acclaimed actress Queen Latifah recently proved she is one fearless queen. Take a look at her Instagram video which showed her bravely receiving the COVID-19 vaccine shot.
Queen Latifah has joined celebrities who want to prove that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe for all. The highly-respected entertainer filmed herself receiving a shot of the vaccine and later shared the video on Instagram.
The video clip showed the 51-year-old actress-rapper, whose real name is Dana Elaine Owens, waiting for the nurse to administer the vaccine. She then focused the camera on her left arm.

After rubbing Latifah's arm with sanitized cotton, the nurse gave the renowned actress, who had a facemask on, the vaccine shot. The "Ladies First" hitmaker captioned her post:
"Done! No Fear?...K maybe a lil but my Sistah's had my back. [sic]"
Latifah's style remained on point even while receiving the shot. Although she wore a printed black shirt, she made up for her simple fashion by wearing large hoop-earrings with the text "Rock Bells" on them.
Many fans took to the comment section to praise Latifah's bravery and poise. Other admirers of the veteran actress shared their own experiences receiving their vaccine shots.
As she doubles her protection against COVID-19, Latifah is feeling pumped to resume filming her shows.
Some followers wrote that it looked painful, even though Latifah appeared unfazed by the needle. Her latest vaccine shot was the star's second one.
She received her first dose last month at Essex County College in her hometown in Newark, New Jersey. Like other celebrities, she made her vaccination public to encourage others to get vaccinated.
The actress explained that the vaccine is nothing to be scared of. Instead, one should be thankful for it because it helps their bodies to fight the virus.
What's scarier, she said, is being in a hospital with a ventilator. With the actress's help, Newark City and County officials hope that residents would no longer fear the vaccine.
As she doubles her protection against COVID-19, Latifah is feeling pumped to resume filming her shows. The veteran actress is the lead star of the crime-drama TV series "The Equalizer."
In addition to the TV series, Latifah has two projects set to premiere under Netflix - the action-thriller film, "End of the Road," and the sports drama, "Hustle."
It's not the first time Latifah collaborated with the online streaming giant. Last year, she starred in Ryan Murphy's "Hollywood" limited series, in which she played the late actress Hattie McDaniel.
