Ricky Martin and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical advisor to the president, took center stage at the 2021 Latin AMAs – via Zoom chat – to talk about the importance of the Hispanic community getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
"Hispanics are disproportionally bearing the burden of COVID-19, so it's extremely important to get them vaccinated to protect themselves, their families and their community," explained Dr. Fauci.
The pair went on to talk about potential side effects after receiving the vaccine. "The usual ones," Dr. Fauci, who shares the same birthday as Martin (Dec. 24), said. "Sore arm for a day and for the second dose, you might feel fatigue, but it never lasts more than 20 hours or so."
