- The Queen Sono actress said that she would not take the vaccine just yet
- Her views on the contested issue caused mixed reactions among social media users
Pearl Thusi has shared her thoughts about the Covid-19 vaccine. As the debate rages on between those who will take it and those who won’t, Pearl Thusi has given her opinion.
The Mzansi media personality said that she would not be lining up to take the vaccine first. Responding to a tweet by Khaya Dlanga, who will be taking the vaccine, Pearl said that she would rather wait until all glitches are ironed out.
Her post read:
“Just like new phone models, I’ll be waiting till they’ve fixed the glitches.”
Her response generated mixed reactions from social media users.
Twitter user @earth2sizwe said:
“What glitches? This is an irresponsible tweet coming from you especially with the recent proliferation of vaccine hesitancy in SA. They wouldn't approve the vaccine if they were not sure of its safety and efficacy.”
“The vaccine has already been tested and found the errors and dangers in it?”
“O swana le nna. I will let the first 50% go and I will join after.”
“Software update you mean?”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Cassper Nyovest has shared that he is ready to take the Covid-19 vaccine. After being questioned by a fan, Cassper shared that he had little choice in the matter and wanted to resume his normal life.
Taking to Twitter, Cass said:
"Do I have a choice my friend? In the bigger picture, I'm just a civilian like you. I am going to do what I am told to do cause I would like things to go back to normal so I can go back to work and feed my family. I also want to travel and apparently vaccines will be mandatory."
Cassper expressed that he really just wanted to go back to performing and travelling. His response was met with mixed reactions from social media users. Twitter user ToxicanDeep_DJ said:
"All our celebrities are acting like they can't see what's going on. They are very influential with useless topics but they can't be influential when it comes to telling the truth to save the nation."
"I know what to say to you but I don't trust anyone or anything any more. I'm just confused and devastated about the whole thing, my mind is condemned. I don't know what to do or say any more, it's really scary to be honest."
"What if this vaccine vele puts something in your DNA? What if there's something behind all of this, it's not just about corona? I don't want you to die or be anyone's puppet, Cassper."
