Demi Lovato Got Her COVID-19 Vaccine: ‘I Would Rather Risk Potential Side Effects’

Demi Lovato has gotten her COVID-19 vaccine, and the singer told fans she would rather risk the potential side effects than risk lives by catching or spreading the deadly coronavirus.

“Getting the vaccine came down to one thought process for me, I simply would rather risk potential side effects of a vaccine than risk lives by catching or spreading covid. It’s normal to be cautious when something new comes along,” she wrote in an Instagram post Monday (May 3) in which she showed off her bandaged arm while rocking a black mask, tinted blue shades and an orange knit cap.

“Wanting to know more is a good thing — it means you want to be informed,” she added along with a trio of heart emojis. The singer also urged fans to ask questions and hear from other people who have similar concerns or queries, pointing them to Global Citizen’s Vax Because site for answers.

Lovato is the latest star to post her COVID vaccine photo at a time when experts worry that the U.S. is likely to fall short of herd immunity. According to The New York Times, with more than half of the adults in the U.S. inoculated with at least one dose of the available vaccines, daily vaccination rates have been trending down and “there is widespread consensus among scientists and public health experts that the herd immunity threshold is not attainable — at least not in the foreseeable future, and perhaps not ever,” the paper reported on Monday (May 3).

In that case, continued immunizations — especially at people at the highest risk because of their age, exposure or health status — is crucial to limit the potential outbreaks of the more virulent variants currently circulating in the country.

Back in March, Lovato helped launch the “Pro-Vaxxer” campaign with Phenomenal and Higher Heights for America to help fight misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine. At the time, she showed off her “Pro-Vaxxer” crewneck sweatshirt and said she was proud to join the push to provide accurate information about the the currently available vaccines, which the CDC has said are the best bet we have to protect people from getting sick or severely ill from the novel coronavirus, which has killed more than 577,000 Americans to date, and infected close to 33 million.
