JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Mississippian Morgan Freeman is urging people to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

Freeman was part of a PSA done by The Creative Coalition, a non-profit organization of members of the entertainment industry.

“I’m not a doctor, but I trust science,” he said.

Freeman lent his iconic voice to the “Be there. This is your shot.” campaign.

The 83-year-old says he’s already received his vaccine.

“If you trust me, you’ll get the vaccine,” he said. “...Get the vaccine. Help make the world a safe place to enjoy ourselves again.”
