While it’s currently unclear which COVID vaccine Jackman took, the Greatest Showman star is currently in New York City. According to the ABC, the United States is rolling out three vaccines - Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson and Johnson - so it’s likely Jackman took one of them.

Like many who are living in COVID heavy cities, Jackman has spent the majority of his recent time inside and in lockdown. And, like many of us, his time alone has led to a variety of new hobbies and passion projects, including his own bread-making business, Baked by Hugh.
