In May, Clapton said that he had experienced a “severe” reaction to the AstraZeneca vaccine, and that he was afraid that he would “never play again.” He also said he was inspired by another musician turned anti-vaccine activist, Van Morrison.

Clapton made his statement through social media accounts of the London-based Italian architect and film producer Robin Monotti, who has repeatedly spoken out against vaccines. He was referring to an announcement from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who stated that starting in September people will have to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccinations in order to go to venues and nightclubs.
