Red Sox Legend David Ortiz Implores Fans To Get COVID-19 Vaccine

'Get the vaccine so we can go back and enjoy life like we used to'


March 18, 2021

Life slowly is returning to normal.

The COVID-19 virus has had us living in a Twilight Zone of sorts over the last year, but as vaccines become more accessible, parts of the world are opening back up.

David Ortiz is trying to help expedite that process.

The Boston Red Sox legend used the team’s Twitter account Thursday to implore fans to get vaccinated when possible.

“I know that the COVID-19 has been devastating with all of our families,” Ortiz said. “We haven’t been allowed to get together to do the things we love. Schools have been closed, businesses have been shut down. We haven’t been able to spend time as a family like we used to with our families and friends. I know we all have questions about the vaccine. I know a lot of us don’t feel comfortable about getting it. But guess what? The only way we’re going to make changes, we’re going to make things happen and go back to doing the thing that we love is getting vaccinated. So get yourself together, get your family together, get the vaccine so we can go back and enjoy life like we used to.”

Fans will be allowed at Fenway Park on April 1, with a limited capacity of 12% for Opening Day.

Hopefully, that will increase throughout the season.
