Nick Nemeroff’s old tweet about COVID-19 vaccine surfaces
On February 6, 2021, Nick sent out a hilarious tweet after being vaccinated.
The comedian attacked the vaccine opponents and joked about the “side effect” he suffered after the vaccination.
“Okay, I got the vaccine and it had a side effect… the area where the needle went (if I had to describe it, I’d say the upper part of my upper arm. If that makes sense?) hurt a little later ‘ Nick tweeted.
The star also sarcastic written at the end: “Seems ok now but honestly I do NOT recommend getting it and wish I could take it back.”
In the tweet, Nick pokes fun at anti-vaccination activists, who have often warned about the vaccine’s alleged side effects.
