JONATHAN VAN NESS
The star of Queer Eye received the vaccine last February 22. This he shared on Instagram...
"In NY, where I'm working the vaccine program expanded to include people w pre-existing conditions, being HIV+ is one of the conditions that allows folks to be vaccinated, so if you're HIV+ please check your states guidelines to see if you're eligible and get vaccinated against covid-19!
“There was a list of other conditions that allows for vaccination so wherever you are check the lists and see if you can get in line. Some places like Cali will give leftover doses but just see what's happening in your area. Had I not been looking online everyday I wouldn't have seen, so def get involved with your search.
“This was my first shot and other than minor soreness in my arm had no side effects and will get my second shot in a few weeks."
"Each state has different guidelines so you'll want to look into yours. Definitely need patience, resolve, access to internet to do this so plz if you can help others obtain information or access plz so that. Biggest Hug & Happy Monday! Also, I know my stronger mask should go under, but I didn't want to take my mask off to put on the stronger under, so I just layered them as was! Stay safe xx."
