Trump told the New York Post on Thursday that he is “all in favor of the vaccine. These remarks come after there has been a slowdown in vaccinations due to hesitancy among Americans. A lot of anti-vaccine beliefs exist mainly among white males and younger adults.
Trump told the Post that he had no side effects from the vaccine, not even arm soreness. He called it pretty amazing stuff. In a telephonic conversation Trump also said that the vaccine was a great thing and that people should take advantage of it but quickly added that nobody should be forced but he strongly recommended it as it was “a real lifesaver.”
Trump had been infected with COVID-19 in 2020. He had trouble breathing and had been admitted at the Walter Reed hospital for a few days. He had taken the first dose of the vaccine before he left the White House sometime in January. He and Melania Trump have taken the second dose in Florida. They didn’t publicize it.
Ivanka Trump, who took her first shot of the Pfizer vaccine in Miami, Florida, recently posted pictures on her social media accounts. She posted about her receiving the vaccine to encourage others to do so according to a source close to her who mentioned it to the Daily Mail.
There are huge concerns by health experts as there are many Americans who are still hesitant about taking the vaccine. Many of them identify as Republicans and as supporters of Trump. Last month, a poll conducted by PBS/NewsHour/NPR revealed that at least 41 percent of those who said that they will not get vaccinated were Republicans.
It has now been established that both the former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden agree on one important issue that is essential for America to return to normalcy. They both believe that COVID-19 vaccines save lives.
