WILLIE NELSON got his COVID-19 vaccine at a drive-up clinic in Cedar Park, Texas on Wednesday.  He’s 87 years old, and suffers from the lung condition COPD, so there’s no doubt he’s at high risk.

Still, his wife Annie made it clear they didn’t jump the line.  She told Rolling Stone, quote, “We made sure that he wasn’t cutting anybody.  In fact, the healthcare workers were kind of angry that we had waited so long.”

She added that she’s been “insanely type A” about keeping Willie safe.  Quote, “Stuff doesn’t even come into the house unless it gets sterilized.” 

The clinic got a little PR out of it too. 

They took photos of Willie in his mask GETTING the shot . . . and posted them on Facebook with the caption, “Getting your COVID vaccine is ‘Willie cool.’  [We] encourage everyone to continue to get routine tests and signup for a vaccine.”
