John King of CNN reveals that he is immunocompromised.

John King, CNN's Chief National Correspondent, revealed to viewers Tuesday that he suffers from multiple sclerosis and is immunocompromised.

"I'm going to share something with you that I've never revealed before," King explained. "I suffer from multiple sclerosis. As a result, I'm pleased that you're all vaccinated."

The announcement occurred during a discussion on King's program, "Inside Politics," about how General Colin Powell, who died of coronavirus complications, was more susceptible to the virus since he also had multiple myeloma, a plasma cell disease that impairs the immune system.

King emphasized the importance of vaccination not just for personal protection, but also for the protection of individuals who are immunocompromised. Even after vaccination, individuals with certain medical problems are more susceptible to contracting Covid-19 than others, as they are less likely to generate an immune response or may have a harder time battling the infection.

King expressed gratitude to CNN for mandating vaccinations for staff and expressed concern about getting the coronavirus and "carrying it home to my 10-year-old son who cannot get a vaccine."

"I dislike it when the government tells me what to do, and I dislike it when my boss tells me what to do," King stated. "It is critical in this instance."

Throughout the episode, King noted how certain members of the right-wing media, such as Fox News host Tucker Carlson, were dishonestly utilizing Powell's death to throw doubt on vaccine effectiveness.

Carlson's action, according to King, was "reckless."
