Fully Vaccinated Rev. Jesse Jackson Hospitalized for COVID

Headline USA

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, a famed civil rights leader and two-time presidential candidate, and his wife, Jacqueline, have been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19, according to a statement Saturday.

Jesse Jackson, 79, is vaccinated against the virus and received his first dose in January during a publicized event as he urged others to receive the inoculation as soon as possible.

He and his wife, 77, are being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.

“Doctors are currently monitoring the condition of both,” according to the statement from Jesse Jackson’s nonprofit, the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

This is one of many high-profile vaccinated individuals to make news recently.In the Senate alone, three vaccinated Senators tested positive for COVID.

Sen. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., and Sen. Angus King, D-Maine have all reported testing positive.

“Senator Wicker tested positive this morning for the COVID-19 virus after immediately seeking a test due to mild symptoms,” his communications director, Phillip Waller, said in a statement. “Senator Wicker is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, is in good health, and is being treated by his Tupelo-based physician. He is isolating, and everyone with whom Senator Wicker has come in close contact recently has been notified.”

A protégé of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson was key in guiding the modern civil rights movement on numerous issues, including voting rights.

“There are no further updates at this time,” the statement said. “We will provide updates as they become available.”

Despite having been diagnosed for Parkinson’s disease, Jackson has remained active.

He has advocated for COVID-19 vaccines for Black people, who lag behind white people in the United States’ vaccination drive.

Earlier this month, he was arrested outside the U.S. Capitol during a demonstration calling for Congress to end the filibuster in order to support voting rights.

  1. Two ways to look at this
    He got the ( saline ) placebo
    He got the real shot and now he’s paying for it

    Either way I don’t have much care as to what happens

  2. Hahahahaaha! Watch him try to turn it into a race thing like he always does. He’ll probably say, “It was the White man’s virus that nearly killed me.”

    The guy has Parkinson’s Disease, a pre-existing neurological condition, and the idiot still took the vax. What a dumbass.

  3. A small sample (IMHO) of the minions of the criminal psycho elites got the actual “vaccine” as part of the “exception that proves the rule” scenario, and Jackson and his wife may be part of that small sample. Again, IMHO. To the forces of evil, everyone not in their exclusive group of “principalities and powers” controlled by Satan, are just “experimental test sujects” including their a$$-kissing minions who, when no longer useful to them, are kicked to the curb if you know what I mean. Parkinsons Disease? So how useful is Jackson now? As for his wife…..

    1. So what if politicians take up the jabs or any kind of jabs. Will Donald die for you?, will he pays vaccine damages? You needs a ton of common sense to brave tru hard times. Prayer & Fasting will be good for body & soul.

  4. He got a paycheck out of this propaganda. sick old f*cker to begin with.. and he’s will willing submit to death as he already knows he is gone… he cant think straight anymore!!! Go to Hell where you came from…..

  5. I never could stand that loud mouthed, beady eyed bastard from the first time I saw his ugly face and heard his whiny, racist voice. I don’t a crap what happens to him.
