Tevin Jones: Hey, I’m Dr. Tevin Jones and welcome to “Will you take it?” The game show where I try to convince my family to take the covid vaccine. Let’s see who is playing today. We got my lovely cousin, Tasha.
Tevin Jones: My favorite uncle, Derek.
Derek: Watch out, now.
Tevin Jones: My cousin, Donald.
Donald: Call me Don Juan.
Tevin Jones: And my sweet aunt, Shawna. How are you doing?
Shawna: Baby, I’m blessed.
Tevin Jones: Good to hear. Alright. As you all know, I’m a medical doctor working on the front lines of covid.
Derek: Yes, that’s right.
Tevin Jones: I’ve seen what this disease is doing first hand.
Donald: Ain’t no joke.
Tevin Jones: And all of you are considered high risk for covid.
Tasha: Whatever that means.
Tevin Jones: Bud despite all of my pleads, none of you have been vaccinated yet.
All: Hell nah!
Tevin Jones: Okay. So, let’s get into it. If you answer this first question right, I will hand you $500 in cash. Listen carefully. Will any of you will just take covid vaccine right now? Anybody? Any takers?[buzzer sound]
Tasha: $500 cash?
Tevin Jones: Yes.
Tasha: Okay. Can you repeat the question?
Tevin Jones: Sure. The question is – would any of you just take the covid vaccine right now? Anybody?[buzzer sound]
Donald: Nope.[wrong answer buzzer]
Tevin Jones: Not the answer I was looking for.
Donald: Man, I don’t need that vaccine, man.
Tevin Jones: And just to remind everybody watching, you’re a diabetic and you’ve been shot in the lung.
Donald: But I never get sick because I sleep in my socks.
Tevin Jones: Time’s up. We were looking for the answer – “Yes, I will take the vaccine.”
Tevin Jones: It’s okay. You’ll get more chances to win. Uncle Derek, you’ve had two heart attacks in the past decade.
Derek: Um-hmm. And I survived by the grace of god.
Tevin Jones: And what will you do if you win some money here?
Derek: Man. I might like me a little reefer. Getting them one of them pellet smokers. Yeah. Throw a big old barbecue bash in the neighborhood. No masks.
Tevin Jones: Okay, sounds like you really need this vaccine. So, for $5,000, will you take the vaccine right now?
Derek: Hmm. I don’t know about that.
Tevin Jones: Think about this, uncle Derek. $5,000 is on the line.
Derek: Damn. 5 racks? It’s a lot of bread. I could get me a little girlfriend.
Tevin Jones: And you can have a barbecue. You can have your barbecue completely vaccinated.
Derek: Nah, it ain’t worth it.
Tevin Jones: Really? What about you, aunt Shawna?
Shawna: You know I can’t take that vaccine. I am a Christian.
Tevin Jones: Who told you Christians can’t take the vaccine?
Tevin Jones: Time’s up. Again, we were looking for – “Yes.”
Derek: Look, I don’t mind taking the vaccine. I just want to be the first, you know?
Tevin Jones: You won’t be the first. Literally, 100 million people have already taken the vaccine.
Derek: Still, though.[game show sound]
Tevin Jones: Well, that sound means it’s time for “Ask a doctor”. This is where each of you get to ask me, a medical doctor, any questions you have about the covid vaccine. And in the end, hopefully, some of you will leave here with cash and take the vaccine. Let’s start the clock at all day. [the game timer has 24 hours countdown.] And go! Tasha.
Tasha: Do it got syphilis in it?
Tevin Jones: What? Of course not. Why would it have syphilis in it? Tasha?
Tevin Jones: Okay. But that was a long time ago.
Tasha: Um-hmm, well I ain’t forget.
Tevin Jones: It doesn’t have syphilis in it. Don?
Donald: Alright, I’ll take it when white people start taking it.
Tevin Jones: White people are taking it.
Donald: Man, you can’t trust white people.
Tevin Jones: Why can’t you trust white people? Tasha?
Tevin Jones: Okay. You’re not wrong about Tuskegee. But still.
Derek: Nephew, I got a question. How come you don’t visit the family no more?
Shawna: Yeah. You missed grandma’s birthday.
Tevin Jones: None of you are vaccinated yet. And you shouldn’t be having parties.
Tasha: [mocking] You shouldn’t be having parties. Dork ass!
Tevin Jones: Whatever. Look, I’m offering you guys $5,000 to take this vaccine.
Derek: Make it 10.
Tevin Jones: Okay, fine. I’ma give you $20,000. Will you take it now?
Derek: 20 racks? [thinking] Nah, I’m good.
Tevin Jones: Okay. This is not working. This is not working. Let’s just take a break. Ha-ha. And when we come back, I’ll see if my girlfriend, Sarah, who’s also a doctor, can change their minds.[Cut to Sarah. She’s a white girl]
Sarah: It’s really nice to meet you guys.[The family are complaining about her]
