Three US former presidents: Barak Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush expressed willingness to take a coronavirus vaccine to prove its efficacy and safety. They may even film themselves. This is a big boost for the entire country and may alleviate the concerns of some of the population.
President Barak Obama confirmed his willingness to take it on TV. “I promise you that when it’s been made for people who are less at risk, I will be taking it,” Obama said on “The Joe Madison Show” that airs on Thursday. “I may end up taking it on TV or having it filmed, just so that people know that I trust this science,” Obama continued. “What I don’t trust is getting COVID.”
The office of former president George W. Bush also told CNN that he as well would be willing to take a coronavirus vaccine to boost public trust.
“A few weeks ago President Bush asked me to let Dr. Fauci and Dr. Brix 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.”
President Bill Clinton is also willing to promote COVID-19 vaccination as his spokesperson said.“President Clinton will definitely take a vaccine as soon as available to him, based on the priorities determined by public health officials. And he will do it in a public setting if it will help urge all Americans to do the same,” Angel Urena said.
