Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson’s son Chet Hanks of celebrity couple recently aired his stance that the COVID-19 vaccine isn’t for him. Chet took to his Instagram account and spoke about his past remarks surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I’m going to keep this real simple for you guys, real simple,” he told his followers. “Just like you have the right to be mad at me because I said I’m not going to get the vaccine…I have the right to not get that s–t. I wanted to, but my immune system said it’s good. It doesn’t need to be tampered with. It said it’s good,” he added in the video.
Chet went on to say “Let’s do the truth. 99% of mothers will not use shampoos that are not approved by the FDA, but they are willing to take experimental injections by the government,” COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. In addition, the government agency said millions of people in the United States have received the shot “under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history,” reported E! News. Though Chet thinks differently he’s better off without the vaccine.
This came a few days after he posted a video on August 10 speaking about the vaccine. Chet shared in the video that he’s tired of wearing masks during the pandemic and even told fans to get over “COVID-19”.
He started the clip with a positive tone by saying that he supports the vaccine. “I’ve been on the fence about this for a while, that’s why I never spoke on it. But with the amount of people I know recently that have gotten COVID, and with the numbers rising, I think it’s important for me to say I got the vaccine, I think everybody should. It’s really important that we all do this,” he said in the clip.
After a few seconds, he changed his mind on the subjectstating vehemently that he won’t be taking the vaccine and tagged it a simple flu. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I never had COVID.
As expected his comments did not sit well with everyone on the social space, most of which was evident in his comment box under the post. Chet’s parents Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson sometime in March had tested positive for COVID-19 while in Australia. He began experiencing symptoms while filming an upcoming Elvis Presley biopic.
