Fully vaccinated and boosted individual tests positive for COVID-19 and blames “Anti-Vaxx” for catching the virus

Despite being fully vaccinated and receiving a booster shot two years ago, British television personality Piers Morgan has tested positive for COVID-19. This was confirmed on his Twitter account, where he expressed his frustration and placed blame on the ‘anti-vaccination’ community for his infection. The 58-year-old host even shared a photo of his positive test. Despite being at home, he has vowed to continue hosting “Uncensored”.

Morgan’s announcement prompted a fierce debate on Twitter, with many people questioning his decision not to have a more recent booster shot. In an exchange with a user, Morgan sarcastically suggested a vaccine for ‘imbecility’. This led to further back-and-forth exchanges in which Morgan insulted unvaccinated individuals and made light of their concerns about the vaccine’s efficacy.

The host even took aim at vaccine skeptics, stating, “Still makes me chuckle that so many supposed tough guys on here take pride in being too scared of a little injection. Grow a pair!” Despite the ongoing debate, Morgan maintained that vaccines do prevent many deaths, while also acknowledging that they cannot entirely stop transmission.

Morgan’s position was challenged not only by Twitter users but also by controversial former kickboxer Andrew Tate, who questioned his stance on vaccines. Amid the criticism, Morgan again took to Twitter, claiming that if he had received an additional booster, he would not have contracted COVID-19.

Medical experts joined the debate, calling into question Morgan’s claims about a potential additional booster preventing his infection. These experts highlighted various severe side effects of COVID-19 vaccines, suggesting that it might be more important to “grow a brain” than to “grow a pair.”

This is not the first time Morgan has battled COVID-19. In 2021, he disclosed his long Covid symptoms following a previous infection. He asked for advice from Twitter users who had experienced similar symptoms and recovered.

Overall, Morgan’s battle with COVID-19 has sparked a heated online debate, with many people questioning the effectiveness and safety of COVID-19 vaccines. This latest incident serves as a reminder of the ongoing challenges in the fight against the global pandemic, and the polarizing views surrounding vaccinations.
