Trivium guitarist and vocalist Matt Heafy has unfortunately contracted COVID-19 after getting his vaccine. According to Heafy in a recent Instagram post, the disease went from his wife to his kids, to himself. Heafy adds that having the vaccine has knocked down having COVID-19 to basically a cold, a situation quite unlike his father's current predicament.
"Welp. Went from a non-vaccinated person to Ashley (vaccinated) to the kids (unvaccinated) to me (vaccinated).
"Thankfully due to being vaccinated it merely feels like a tour cold; my dad however got sick without a vaccine and is now 12 weeks into a very terrible recovery with lung/ heart/ liver issues.
"I outta be good in a day or two. See y'all on stream tomorrow regardless!"
According to the CDC, fully vaccinated people are much less likely to be hospitalized or die than people with similar risk factors who are not vaccinated.
