Ozzy Osbourne is feeling “relieved” after getting the vaccine for COVID-19.

The metal legend and his wife/manager Sharon called into the British talk show Loose Women Friday, during which he was asked if he’d yet received the shot.

“Of course!” replied Ozzy, who was sitting shirtless in bed next to Sharon. “He says ‘of course,’ he only had it yesterday!” Sharon quipped.

Ozzy shared that his arm felt “sore” after being vaccinated, but added that he’s “glad [he] got it.”

“As soon as I got it, I felt relieved,” he said.

Late last year, Sharon revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 and was briefly hospitalized. She’s since recovered and returned home after quarantining away from Ozzy.

Ozzy, meanwhile, who turned 72 in December, has been through a host of health issues over the past couple years, including a battle with pneumonia and undergoing neck surgery. In 2020, he revealed he’d been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
