More vaccine news! Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton have all volunteered to get the coronavirus vaccines on camera to prove its efficacy and promote confidence in the safety of the vaccine.

Once the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorizes the vaccine, each former president will get it. Experts are hopeful that this public awareness campaign will promote the vaccine and encourage all eligible Americans to get vaccinated.

Freddy Ford, Bush’s chief of staff, told CNN that the Bush had reached out to Dr. Anthony Fauci, “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. 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.”

Clinton’s press secretary shared similar news. “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.

And Obama also shared he would be getting the vaccine on camera if needed. “I promise you that when it’s been made for people who are less at risk, I will be taking it,” he 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,” he added.
