Morgan Freeman backstage during the American Black Film Festival Honors Awards Ceremony at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on February 23, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California.

In a new PSA presented by The Creative Coalition and the National Blue Ribbon Task Force, Morgan Freeman reassures the segment of the public who have COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy.

Freeman, 83, says he trusts science and that yes, he got the vaccine. In the video, Freeman says, “I’m not a doctor, but I trust science. And I’m told that, for some reason, people trust me. So: here I am to say, I trust science, and I got the vaccine. If you trust me, you’ll get the vaccine. In math, it’s called the distributive property. In people, it’s called taking care of one another. Get the vaccine. Help make our world a safe place for us to enjoy ourselves again. Please?”
