Young actor Lily Collins, who gained international fame after starring in the Netflix series ‘Emily in Paris,’ went to her verified Instagram account to herald that she is now fully vaccinated against COVID-19 disease.
On May 17, the star released a photo of herself showing her COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card and expressed her happiness to have received two doses of the vaccine, while a great number of countries could not reach it. The actor, who received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy for her performance in the Netflix series, wrote:
“Fully vaccinated and could not be happier or more relieved. We might take it for granted, but as Americans we are so beyond privileged to have access to the Covid-19 vaccines. Not every country has this luxury, and my heart is heavy thinking about those communities who are still struggling to keep each other safe and healthy.”
As she did before, Collins urged her fans and followers to get vaccinated for the people around them and to “help this country and the world start to move forward.” By referring to the anti-vaxxers, who find it very suspicious to get the vaccine, she continued:
“If 2020 showed us anything it’s that we are all more connected than ever — and it’s not just about us as individuals, but all of us as a whole, looking out for each other and doing the right thing. Sending love and light to you all.”
Even though the star did not target anybody & any groups, her comments section flooded with negative messages. Because of that, she added a note announcing that the post is not paid and she just wanted to share it. She concluded:
“Let’s please be gentle and kind in the comments to those who are still exploring options or aren’t sure – and uplifting to those who have already been vaccinated. It’s all still new and I understand the apprehension from so many, but I really do encourage you to think about the future of society at large — and the lives of the more vulnerable, too. Xo…”
