Model Anwar Hadid says he “absolutely” will not get the COVID-19 vaccine – and insists the human body “can do much more than we think.”
The 21-year-old, the brother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid, was asked by an Instagram follower if he would take the vaccine to which he responded: ‘Absolutely not’, according to TMZ.
During the same question-and-answer session, Anwar is asked by another fan, “Why are you anti-wax?”
“Either I just do not get it, or I get it, and if it is benevolent, I heal from it and get antibodies rather than doing the process unnaturally. Our creator lets our bodies do more than we think,” he replied. .
Anwar was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, which could put him at high risk for a poor outcome if he contracted the virus, TMZ reports.
Some fans have criticized the model’s explanation for why he will not get the vaccine.
