Rock said during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May that he had received Johnson & Johnson's one-shot COVID-19 vaccine.

Months earlier, Rock discussed why people should get the vaccine even if they have questions about it in a CBS Sunday Morning interview with Gayle King.

"I'm gonna put it this way -- do I take Tylenol when I get a headache? Yes," he said. "Do I know what's in Tylenol? I don't know what's in Tylenol, Gayle. I just know my headache's gone. Do I know what's in a Big Mac, Gayle? No. I just know it's delicious."
