Notably, Saget admitted during a December 13th episode of his podcast “Bob Saget’s Here For You” that he had received a Covid booster jab just days before.
“I went to the pharmacy the other day and got a booster shot,” he explained. “I should have gotten it in my arm, but I got it in my butt.”

“I try not to preach. I got my booster shot. I got my booster shot the day before yesterday,” Saget said towards the end of the podcast linked below.

On November 28th, the comedian posted a joke about the booster shot on Twitter.
Throughout the pandemic, Saget frequently promoted the experimental mRNA shots on social media.
In a February Twitter post, the “Full House” star insinuated the Covid vaccines would eliminate Covid by 2023.
It’s so cool Covid is gone due to the vaccine and everyone in Congress all get along. Shit, sorry, I set this to post in 2023. My bad.— bob saget (@bobsaget) February 7, 2021
In May, the comedian talked with CBS News about vaccine hesitancy and “real facts” about the vaccine.
A post from August declaring, “I don’t wanna preach,” went on to ask followers to “please get your vaccine today,” claiming they “save lives.”
