Trisha Yearwood’s Lingering Covid Symptoms

Trisha Yearwood receives COVID vaccine 2 months after testing positive Garth Brooks' wife tested positive for COVID-19 in February

FOX NEWS – Trisha Yearwood received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine two months after battling the virus. The country singer, who is married to Garth Brooks, shared the experience on Instagram.

“This #EveryGirl finally got her first dose of the vaccine! To all who made this day possible, thank you. xo #grateful,” Yearwood, 56, wrote.

Yearwood’s first jab came just one day after she discussed lingering symptoms she has while appearing on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”

The country singer revealed that she still has not regained her ability to taste or smell. Yearwood added that she first realized she couldn’t taste or smell when Brooks brought her coffee five days after contracting the virus.

“I love you, but did you put coffee in here?” she recalled questioning Brooks at the time.

In 18th-century Russia, Catherine the Great was inoculated against smallpox as part of her campaign to promote the nationwide rollout of the procedure. Almost 200 years later, backstage at “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Elvis Presley received the polio vaccine in an effort to help reach at-risk teenagers.

But do the star-studded endorsements really work? Not necessarily. Epidemiologists say there are plenty of caveats and potential pitfalls — and little scientific evidence to prove that the endorsements actually boost vaccine uptake.
