TV star Al Roker's wife Deborah Roberts, and the couple's son, Nicholas, posed in a new picture on social media, showing fans that they got vaccinated while encouraging citizens in their own creative way.
Famous weatherman Al Roker and his family have taken the precautionary step against COVID-19 by getting vaccinated, and they also took it upon themselves to encourage fans and the general public.
Roker's wife, Deborah Roberts, and their grown son, Nicholas, proved this in a new post on her Instagram page. The pair shared that they recently got vaccinated as they posed for the camera.

Nicholas, 18, and his mom looked lovely posing indoors and sharing a cuddly hug. The pair twinned with brilliant smiles and grey T-shirts with the word "vaccinated" etched on them coupled with images of the vaccine jab.
While Roberts matched her shirt with embroidered jean trousers, Nicholas opted for black track pants. Roberts, an ABC personality, gave props to her spouse for the expressive T-shirts. She captioned:
"Thursday thankfulness. Appreciate the cool shirts that you designed @alroker #grateful."
Roberts and Nicholas' vaccination comes a few months after Roker took his. He qualified for the age specification which states that citizens above 65 were in line for their first doses.
She was geared about the COVID-19 vaccine because of her 88-year-old mom.
Roker visited the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York where he received his first Pfizer vaccine dose. The star filmed the vaccination procedures which were transmitted on "Today." Roker made it known that it took a while to get a slot.
At the hospital, he talked to the medical director, Dr. Daniel Baker, who sensitized him more on the benefits of taking the vaccine. Baker mentioned that it was important that people continued using their facemasks even after getting vaccinated.
The doctor noted that this was the most essential part of extending the herd immunity. In another episode of "Today," Roker and his fellow TV host, Hoda Kotb, got candid on their reason for getting vaccinated.
Hoda, who was waiting for the age limit to be lifted or eased, stated that she was geared about the COVID-19 vaccine because of her 88-year-old mom, her spouse, their two daughters, and people she randomly came across.
So far, Roker and his family have been able to get the vaccines, and encouraging other people has become a priority. Roker and Roberts share two kids, Leila and Nicholas. His oldest child is Courtney, from his first marriage with Alice Bell.
