Jamie Foxx recently took to social media to dispel false claims that the COVID-19 vaccine can cause paralysis and blindness. The actor shared a video in which he spoke about the importance of getting vaccinated and warned against spreading misinformation.
“I’m seeing a lot of stuff on social media about the vaccine,” Foxx said in the video. “People are saying it’s going to make you paralyzed, it’s going to make you blind. That’s not true. The vaccine is safe. It’s been tested. It’s been proven to work.”
Foxx went on to say that he was vaccinated himself and that he encouraged others to do the same. “I got the vaccine,” he said. “I’m fine. My family got the vaccine. We’re all fine. So please, get the vaccine. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19.”
Foxx’s video comes at a time when misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine is rampant. A recent poll found that 25% of Americans believe that the vaccine can cause paralysis, and 15% believe that it can cause blindness. These beliefs are not supported by science.
The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective. It has been rigorously tested and has been shown to be highly effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. The vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the virus.
If you have any questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine, please talk to your doctor.
