"Phil ... regrets not being more vehemently 'Pro-Vaccine'"

Valentine’s social media accounts are littered with posts questioning the safety and necessity of the vaccines.

‘Ah, but I’m sure their vaccine is perfectly safe. Don’t worry about it,’ he tweeted on July 16, four days after announcing he had contracted the virus, above a link to an article about vaccine maker Johnson & Johnson pulling their sunscreens from shelves over cancer concerns…

‘Phil would like for his listeners to know that while he has never been an “anti-vaxxer” he regrets not being more vehemently “Pro-Vaccine,”‘ his brother Mark said.

Some have reacted with schadenfreude at the news of Valentine’s illness.

‘I got their vaccine. And I am NOT currently in the hospital getting assistance with breathing,’ replied one person under Valentine’s tweet slamming Johnson & Johnson.
