In May, the comedian said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that he was vaccinated. He said he got the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. "That's the food stamps of vaccines," he joked at the time.

"You know, I skipped the line," he said. "I didn’t care. I used my celebrity, Jimmy. I was like, 'Step aside, Betty White. Step aside, old people … I did 'Pootie Tang.' Let me on the front of the line.'"

I don't know what's in Tylenol, Gayle. I just know my headache's gone. Do I know what's in a Big Mac, Gayle? No. I just know it's delicious," he said.
