Country music legend Larry Gatlin has tested positive for the Coronavirus a mere four days after receiving his second dose of the Moderna vaccine. Gatlin received the vaccine on March 4th and tested positive for COVID-19 on March 8th.
“I made it 361 days without getting COVID-19,” explains Gatlin. “Then, I finally get it four days after getting my second dose of Moderna. What are the odds?”
As of now, Gatlin’s symptoms are mild, cough, drainage and fatigue. He says he’s faring well.
“At this moment I feel like Lou Gehrig when he said, ‘Today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth,'” Gatlin tells FoxNews.com . “Folks, I feel like I have a cold, and not even a bad one at that. I even hit a few golf balls before dinner.”
“To you who have been terribly sick or have lost friends or loved ones, my heartfelt prayers go out to you,” he continues. “I have a lot of character flaws and defects you can pray about if you want to. Instead, please join me in praying for our friends and neighbors who have suffered and are still suffering, and for our country.”
Tune in to Fox & Friends on March 13th at 8;20 AM on the Fox News Channel where Gatlin will appear and talk about his experience with the virus.
Gatlin will also appear on Fox News Channel’s Fox Report on Sunday, March 14th during the 5:00 PM ET hour.
