Tyler Perry Sets Up Vaccination Site for His Production Crew

Tyler Perry got vaccinated in TV in January in an effort to instill trust in it. Now, he is helping those working as part of his production crew to get the COVID-19 shot.

Per THR, the mogul set up a vaccination site at his Tyler Perry Studios production facility in Atlanta, Georgia, where he covered the logical costs of setting up the site and worked with the nearby Grady Hospital to staff the event.

The vaccines were open to anyone at the studio who wanted one and hadn’t received one yet. That included his entire crew, along with their family and friends. They were not mandatory.

“There’s still a lot of vaccine hesitancy out there,” says Perry, noting that 55 percent of his crew agreed to get vaccinated, per THR. “It’s my hope that people will just get out and get the vaccine, and know that I have it and other members of my staff have it and we’ve [had] no issues, no problems.”

THR adds: “A total of 250 shots were administered over the weekend. Since everyone was given the Pfizer vaccine, which requires two doses, the hospital staff will return later this month to administer the second shots.”
