Yesterday, Vivek made the headlines after he took the vaccination for COVID 19 at a government owned hospital in Chennai. After taking the jab, Vivek addressed the press and urged the public to take vaccination during their turn. He said, "Vaccine is the only thing that can save your life. If you ask me whether people who are vaccinated don’t get infected with COVID-19, it does not work like that. Even if COVID-19 hits you, there won’t be death." Celebrities including Khushbu Sundar, Venkat Prabhu, Sibi Sathyaraj have wished him a speedy recovery.
