Was Bruce Willis forced to get vaccinated against COVID-19?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Bruce Willis Was Forced To Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19!

People are sharing messages and articles claiming that Bruce Willis was forced to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

All of them revolve around this quote from an interview that Willis allegedly gave in 2021.

“Yes, I am vaccinated. But I must say, if I could be kind enough to say, I didn’t do it willingly”, Willis had said during an interview in 2021.

Truth : Bruce Willis Was NOT Forced To Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about Bruce Willis and the COVID-19 vaccine, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No General Vaccine Mandate In The United States

This fake news is at least partially based on the false perception that there is a general vaccine mandate in the United States.

The Biden Administration ordered a vaccine mandate for selected groups in 2021 :

  • Healthcare workers : except those with medical / religious exemptions
  • Military personnel : except those with medical / religious exemptions
  • Non-citizen air travellers : except certain exceptions – under 18, airplane crews, diplomats, permanent residents, special exemptions, etc.
  • Federal employees : Suspended
  • Federal contractors : Suspended
  • Private sector employees : Withdrawn on 25 January 2022

Various state authorities have also enacted their own vaccine mandates, but only for selected sectors. For example :

  • California : state employees, healthcare workers, educational workers
  • New York : state employees and healthcare workers
  • Washington : state employees, healthcare workers, educational workers

Other than certain selected groups, no one else in the United States is required to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #2 : Bruce Willis Likely Fully-Vaccinated In Early 2021

Bruce Willis has never spoken about his COVID-19 vaccination status. However, it is highly likely that he was vaccinated against COVID-19 by early 2021.

While there is no general vaccine mandate in the United States, many film productions insist that all actors and crews must be fully-vaccinated to avoid expensive halts if an outbreak occurs on set.

Willis was extremely prolific in the last year or so, participating in 15 films since 2021. He would need to be fully-vaccinated to participate in most, if not all of them.

However, he would not have been “forced” to do it. He would have to willingly choose to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Interview Quote Belonged To Mike Tyson

The interview quote that claimed to show that Willis was forced to get vaccinated was WRONGLY ATTRIBUTED.

Willis never gave a 2021 interview in which he spoke about being forced to get his COVID-19 vaccine.

All those websites that used this quote did not identify who interviewed Willis, or provide a link to the interview. That’s because it never happened.

The quote was lifted – word for word – from Mike Tyson’s interview with USA TODAY on 6 October 2021.

Yes, I am vaccinated. But I must say, if I could be kind enough to say, I didn’t do it willingly.

As you can see in this clip of the USA Today interview, it was Mike Tyson who said them, not Bruce Willis.

Fact #4 : Bruce Willis’ Aphasia Had Nothing To Do With Vaccine

This new fake claim is being peddled as a cautionary tale of what happens when people are “forced” to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

They are indirectly suggesting that, if you are forced to get the COVID-19 vaccine, you may end up with aphasia like Bruce Willis.

The truth is – COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause aphasia. That is misinformation based on :

Also, Bruce Willis had been suffering from cognitive issues long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

The most common causes of aphasia are stroke, head injuries, brain tumours and progressive neurological conditions.

And globally, strokes alone are responsible for 5 million new cases of aphasia every year, before the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, and long before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.
