“Every Shot Matters”: Harris met up with the two stars during a recent trip to Atlanta to discuss the importance of vaccinations, according to Popsugar.
  • “Every shot matters and is another life protected,” wrote Condor in an Instagram caption.
  • Harris referred to the vaccine as power and said that it was important to remind everyone not to let anyone, including misinformation, take that power away.

  • Butler revealed that he tested positive in March last year.
  • “I had COVID, and I’m young and healthy and it sucked,” he said.
