An opera superstar clarifies her vax positionNews
The Lithuanian soprano Asmik Grigorian has been dogged by rumours that she is an anti-vaxxer. In an Austrian interview, she sets the record straight:
Ms. Grigorian, the New York Times reported that you suffered from Long Covid. Will we never let go of the topic?
AG: I had Corona, but already two years ago. It took me quite a long time to recover. But I don’t know what Long Covid is, I don’t read newspapers and I don’t want to know anything about Corona.
Once again on the unspeakable Corona topic. An opera singer told me that she has been vaccinated four times, twice with Sputnik and twice with Pfizer, because Sputnik does not apply everywhere.
AG: Yes, we all only have one butt and mine is now full of vaccinations! (Laughs.)
Are you fully vaccinated yourself?
AG: I have no choice.
Vaccination has been made compulsory in Austria since February 1st. What do you think?
AG: I’m not a politician. Let’s change the subject.
