The historic star of NBA Earvin “Magic” Johnson received the first dose of the vaccine against new coronavirus this Wednesday, at the age of 61. The ex-pivot made a point of showing his followers on social media the moment when the head of the Los Angeles Fire Department, Ralph Terrazas, applied it on his arm. “Today I received my first dose of the vaccine Pfizer against Covid-19. I’m very excited to have taken one of the final steps to protect me and my family, ”wrote Magic, on his Instagram, who thanked Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti,“ for ensuring that there are vaccination posts throughout the city, especially in African American and Latin communities ”

The former player received his first dose with two famous friends: Arsenio Hall, 65, the main character of the franchise “A prince in New York”, and Danny Trejo, 76, known for his performances in the series of action films “Machete”. They were immunized with vaccines from different suppliers. Magic received that from Pfizer, while Hall was stung with a single dose from Johnson & Johnson. Trejo won the vaccine from Moderna. Both encouraged vaccination in the southern region of Los Angeles, which has one of the lowest immunization rates in the city. Only 4% of the population has been vaccinated in the region so far.

“I am very happy to be here with Danny and my 40 year old friend Arsenio Hall to get the vaccine because it is important,” said Magic, in a good mood. “I have done everything the right way, wearing my mask, cleaning my hands all the time, I have been taking the covid-19 test every two weeks. The most important thing now is to get this vaccine and relax my mind. I did all my research and homework, I consulted my doctors and they said that this is what I should do ”, added the ex-player, who made it official in the past, in the early 90s, to be HIV positive.
