Ozzy Osbourne recently had a chat with co-host Billy Morrison in a new episode of “Ozzy Speaks” on SiriusXM’s Ozzy’s Boneyard, where the singer said that he’s planning to get Covid-19 vaccine.
“I look at it like this: if I don’t get the shot and I get the virus, there’s a good chance I ain’t going to be here.”
Last November, Ozzy told GQ magazine that he suffers from a respiratory disease which puts him at an increased risk of severe pneumonia and poor outcomes if he was to develop COVID-19.
“I’ve got emphysema, so if I get this virus, I’m f*cked.”
Asked about his health, Ozzy said:
“The surgery I had knocked the crap out of me. But I broke my neck in a quad bike accident [in 2003] and when that healed it squeezed my spinal column, so I was getting all kinds of weird things happening to me. I’d be on stage and I’d suddenly get a sharp shock down one side of my body. Then one night 18 months ago I went to the bathroom in the dark and just hit the ground. I said [to my wife], ‘Sharon, I’m on the floor,’ and she said, ‘Well, get up then!’ But I couldn’t. Once you’re 70, the floodgates open and everything goes downhill. Mind you, I’ve got away with it for a long time.”
