System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian Gives Update On His Health Following Positive COVID-19 Diagnosis, Clarifies His Opinion On Vaccines


System Of A Down were forced to postpone their planned headlining shows in Los Angeles, CA last weekend as a result of their frontman Serj Tankian having tested positive for COVID-19. This weekend Tankian checked in with an update on his health, offering the below post:

“Not as funny if you’re home with Covid, but still funny :) We had ordered Halloween decorations for our son’s birthday which we had to reschedule along with the 2 SOAD shows. I am overwhelmed and extremely grateful for the outpouring of love and concern from friends and strangers alike. I am doing well and hoping to be clear of all symptoms soon. I believe that being vaccinated helped minimize my symptoms and suffering.

We have many in our community who are resistant to the vaccine. I do understand and am not someone who takes sides on this issue. I think every medical situation requires proper understanding of the patients gender, age, medical history and preconditions. Vaccines should be no different and their side effects taken into serious consideration.

The health industry cannot operate as a one size fits all on anything anymore. It’s medically irresponsible. That said I’m happy I along with my elder parents are vaccinated. Thank you again for all the love.”

The rescheduled dates for the band’s affected shows with Korn, Helmet and Russian Circles will now take place February 04th & 05th at the Banc Of California Stadium in Los Angeles, CA.
