When Russell Wilson appears on NBC on a Sunday night, he’s usually wearing a football uniform. This Sunday night, he won’t be.

Wilson and his wife, Ciara, will host Roll Up Your Sleeves this Sunday night on NBC at 7:00 p,m. ET. The program, aimed at encouraging COVID-19 vaccinations, will include President Joe Biden and various celebrities, including (via Yahoo.com) Charles Barkley, Jennifer Lopez, Matthew McConaughey, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Shaquille O’Neal.

Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, will participate. McConaughey will interview Dr. Anthony Fauci.

It’s critical for everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccination, and it’s great that people like Wilson and Ciara are attaching their names, faces, and voices to the effort.

All things COVID inexplicably became political, early in the pandemic. It shouldn’t be that way. We all must respect and trust science, and we all must do our part to avoid goofy conspiracy theories and to do what needs to be done to get back to normal.

And if the vaccine really is a way for Bill Gates to track my movements and activities, I’ve got no problem with it. If Gates wants to be extremely bored what where I go and what I do, that’s his prerogative.

  1. the vaccine doesn’t PREVENT you from getting it. It doesn’t PREVENT you from passing it along if you get it. iT’s intent is to reduce symptoms and such if you do get it…

  2. “Trust Science” doesn’t mean blindly trust “science.”

    Responsible people question EVERYTHING! Especially from “experts” who are wrong quite frequently.

    If your vaccine works, you shouldn’t have to worry about me getting mine

    ————–

    If I only worried about myself, you would be correct. I personally didn’t get it for me, but for others. Maybe even you.

  4. I assume there will be a lot of people who will wait for the show that has a lot of right-wing Republicans endorsing the vaccine.
    There’s folks who are going see Obama and will instantly flip the channel to ‘Honey Boo-Boo” or Duck Dynasty.

    esxcept it doesn’t work like, say, the polio vaccine…or the measles vaccine…..you’re getting it because you’re a sheep to the government.

  6. The guest list is a veritable who’s who of people I don’t care about enough to watch a TV special.

    It doesn’t cure Covid…if that’s what you mean. However it does make it much less likely to contract. So if there is less of a chance of me contracting it, then there is less of a chance of me giving it to you.

    Also sheep is not an insult considering the people using it. It’s like being labeled “Fake News” by Trump. It’s basically a dumb person’s insult.

    So baaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 😛

  8. I currently am home with the virus. It is not a joke. The waves of pain literally floods my eyeballs. I will get the vaccine for others. I would not wish this upon anyone. Make your own choice and dont try to turn this into a fight. Trust me it is horrible. Definitely not the flu.

  9. So again I ask- for the anti mask people, anti Vax people-

    Are you willing to sign a do not recesitate and a do not intabate form?

  10. Before we know it, these pro athletes will become so-called ‘doctors’ because they can attract a large audience.

  11. >> It’s critical for everyone to get a COVID-19 vaccination, and it’s great that people like Wilson and Ciara are attaching their names, faces, and voices to the effort.

    Nuts to that. Why not build your immune system instead of taking experimental drugs?

  12. “Trust the science” they said about the RNA-based vaccine that was fast-tracked through trials to save us from a virus with a 99.7% survival rate. I can’t wait to see what long-term side-effects people have in a couple years.

  13. Sounds like another sunday night of netflix…anything would have to be more appealing tv.

  14. I’m not against getting the Covid vaccine, because I’m concerned about the long term health effects. No one know what it will do to our bodies in 5 years. I’m going to wait until the FDA approved the vaccine for human consumption. The EUA is scary when it relieves any liability from the manufacturers.

    Weaponizing this vaccine politically isn’t helping me to get it either.

  15. Liberals:
    Don’t get vaccines for your kids, it’s causes autism’

    Also liberals:
    Get vaccinated for COVID!

  16. The special sounds pretty corny but if it successfully motivates some to get the vaccine, then so be it. Air it on a loop, telethon style. And run another showing right wing people getting it too (even Trump got vaccinated!), if that helps people understand that it’s not politics, it’s science. Sad to see this country basically turning into the movie Idiocracy. The virus is very much real and very much out there. And no, the vaccine does not contain microchips from Bill Gates or have anything to do with 5G. I can’t even get 5G on my phone, trust me, it definitely isn’t in any vaccines.

  17. Normally a vaccine is tested 10 to 15 years before it’s approved for public use, but because of a “so called” emergency they just bypass all the rules, guidelines, and testing…for what good reason? I had Covid back in December 2020 and it wasn’t fun, but it’s not the end of the world. You really feel like crap for 3 days and it went completely away after 9 days. I would rather build up my antibodies than live in fear of blood clots or some unknown life ending situation occur because I fed in to the media fear porn. As far as all the other people who live in fear, you go get your shot, heck, take mine because I won’t be a lab rat for a government experiment. It’s funny how covid gets people all riled up, but the truth is the common cold, the seasonal flu, pneumonia, car accidents, aids, ect ect ect all kill more people every day and nobody seems to even blink an eye.

  18. I got my first shot today. No one is a super human and this disease could kill you or someone you spread it to. Trust science, not social media.

  19. Add “vaccine special” to the growing list of things I’d never thought I’d see in my lifetime.

  20. If you TAKE the vax – You become part of the test group.

    If you DON’T take the vax – You are part of the control group.
