Concerts. Barbecues. Family reunions. These are just a few of many things John Legend has missed being able to do during the pandemic. (Us, too!)
To spread awareness about the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations in getting everyone back together and back to the things that matter most, Legend has teamed up with Walgreens on its “This Is Our Shot” campaign, which encourages COVID-19 vaccination and addresses hesitancy.
As part of the campaign, Legend sat down for a virtual chat with Stephen Fadowole, Walgreens pharmacist in Chicago. The two dive into personal reasons for getting vaccinated and how they’re encouraging others – and both agree that they really need a barbecue. Skim the questions Fadowole asks Legend below and watch their conversation unfold.
