Former Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton volunteer to get coronavirus vaccine publicly

Former Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush are all volunteering to get their Covid-19 vaccines on camera in to encourage the American public to follow suit and to promote confidence in the vaccine’s safety.  Former President Obama announced this during The Joe Madison Show.

Recurring concerns are that  the vaccine is not as effective as Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna claim it to be, or that the vaccine has a chip in it. President Obama wants to debunk these false claims. He wants Americans to trust science and change their negative thoughts on the vaccine. After President Obama publicly stated this, Presidents Clinton and Bush supported Obama and stated that they would like to be apart of the public vaccination.

President Obama is especially doing a televised event of him receiving the vaccine for the African American community as they are more hesitant to get a vaccine than other racial and ethnic groups. After all three former presidents voluntarily announced that they would take the vaccine publicly, President-Elect Joe Biden has volunteered to do the same. Barack Obama said that if Dr. Anthony Fauci states that the vaccine is safe, then he will have no problem taking the vaccine as he trusts Dr.Fauci completely.

President George W. Bush also reached out to Dr. Fauci to let him know that he is happy to be filmed getting the vaccine. Former President Jimmy Carter supports the COVID-19 vaccine efforts and encourages everyone to get vaccinated; however, Carter did not announce that he will take the vaccine publicly.

The vaccine might take until May or June to become more widely available to the general public, so it might take months to see the former presidents being vaccinated. President Obama’s being publicly vaccinated is similar to how George H.W. Bush went on a commercial airplane after the events on September 11, 2001. Obama’s public vaccination is to show Americans, especially minorities in communities where COVID cases are more prevalent, that these COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
