Noel Gallagher gets Covid-19 vaccine after initially declining jab
Gallagher, who has previously spoken out about his refusal to wear face masks, said he was initially worried about "hair loss".
Noel Gallagher has revealed that he has received his first Covid-19 vaccine, while also calling out people who are "wagging their finger at people who are declining it".
The musician told Radio Times that his doctor told him he would be a “fool” not to get the vaccine, after he initially declined it.
Gallagher claimed that he wasn't afraid of the virus as he believed he had suffered worse after contracting food poisoning in Mexico, adding that he was initially worried about "hair loss" until his doctor assured him there was no evidence to support that claim.
“So you’re saying I should take it?” Gallagher said he asked his doctor, to which he apparently responded: “No, I’m saying, if you don’t take it, you’re a fool.”
“I will say, it’s a human right to decline,” Gallagher added.
“And the people who are virtue-signalling their lofty wagging their finger at people who are declining it can F off. That’s how fascism starts.
“When I sit at home and in between the football there’s Lenny Henry ‘take the jab’, looking like an abandoned dog, I’m like, 'mate, you take the jab, it’s up to you’.”
The former Oasis guitarist has previously spoken out about refusing to wear face masks in spite of restrictions and laws put in place in the UK to try and minimise the spread of Covid-19.
Gallagher said he had been outright refusing to wear a face mask while shopping and on public transport, despite the law stating one must be worn in these settings.
Speaking as a guest on The Matt Morgan podcast, Gallagher said: "Listen to me... it's not a law. There's too many f**king liberties being taken away from us now."
