A recent report states that three former presidents have volunteered to take the Covid-19 vaccination on camera in hopes to make Americans feel safe. This would take place only after the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves/authorizes the vaccine once one is fully ready.
It was former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama who pledged to take the vaccine, and Bush had recently reached out to Dr. Fauci with questions about how he could help promote the vaccine, per a report on CNN.
“A few weeks ago President Bush asked me to let Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx know that, when the time is right, he wants to do what he can to help encourage his fellow citizens to get vaccinated,” Ford told CNN. “First, the vaccines need to be deemed safe and administered to the priority populations. Then, President Bush will get in line for his, and will gladly do so on camera.”
Bill Clinton’s press secretary said he would take the vaccine in a “public setting” if that helped to promote it to the public. When it comes to Barack Obama, the most recent former president, he said he would believe Dr. Fauci about how safe the vaccine is. Obama stated, that “if Anthony Fauci tells me this vaccine is safe, and can vaccinate, you know, immunize you from getting Covid, absolutely, I’m going to take it.”
Obama further said, “I may end up taking it on TV or having it filmed, just so that people know that I trust this science, and what I don’t trust is getting Covid.”
Many Americans have expressed hesitation in taking a vaccine that’s released quickly as they might be unsure of the long-term effects. However, people are being encouraged to trust the science and follow safety guidelines and suggestions.
