In an effort to encourage people to get the COVID vaccination the ‘Dream Team of ‘Magic’ Johnson, Danny Trejo and Arsenio Hall were filmed at L.A.’s USC getting their COIVD shots.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who helped arrange the press event, met the group for their first jabs.
Danny Trejo laid it on the line:
‘I’m so proud to take this shot, and I know there’s a lot, even in my neighborhood, there’s a lot of tough guys that are talking about “You don’t need no shot,” but you know what, maybe your family does. If you don’t take it for yourself, take if for your family, because I want to keep my kids safe.’
“Today I got my first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. I’m so excited to have taken one of the final steps to protect myself and my family from COVID-19! My good friend for roughly 40 years, actor, and comedian Arsenio Hall and actor, entrepreneur, activist, and my brother Danny Trejo with our vaccination cards!'”
Giving a shout-out to the L.A. Mayor he added, ‘Thank you to Mayor Eric Garcetti for making sure there are vaccination stations all over the city and especially in African American and Latino communities!’
