Shaq Reveals He Lost Close Family Members To COVID

Just like many other people, Shaq had his doubts regarding the vaccine. However, when the vaccine was not available, he lost a few of his close family members to COVID. Moreover, he thinks people should feel lucky about the availability of the COVID vaccine as many diseases like HIV don’t have a vaccine yet. Furthermore, he said, “HIV had been around a long time, there’s no cure for that. Cancer has been around a long time with no cure for that. You come up with this in a year-and-a-half. I have all those concerns. However, I’ve seen people pass away from this… people close to me.”
