When the two celebrities went to get vaccinated, they were told that they were not yet old enough to get vaccinated.
Hollywood couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, who contracted Covid-19 last year, have yet to receive their vaccinations. Hanks and Wilson, both 64, were told they weren’t “old enough.”
“It has been very emotional. We have not yet received our vaccinations. How about you hear this for the first time in your life? They are not old enough. It’s like, “Ok, I’ll stick with that.” We are online now because so many people are vaccinated and they are opening up to the next age level, “Wilson said on ‘The Today Show.’
“Yes, even when we found out that we had antibodies, that was extraordinary because you knew you had some protection, and that is what the vaccine is doing to help people as well. Seeing people hugging for the first time in a year, grandparents hugging their grandchildren, people hugging their parents, it doesn’t get any better than that. That is truly a gift, ”Wilson said.
