Obama, Bush and Clinton will get vaccinated on live tv

Three former U.S. presidents have come forward to support the anti- covid vaccination campaign: Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton volunteered to get vaccinated on TV.  

They hope to support the efforts of health authorities who will be committed to convincing the public about the safety of the vaccine, and the need to administer it once the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized its distribution.

Freddy Ford, Bush's chief of staff, told CNN that the former president approached Anthony Fauci (director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases) and Deborah Birx, White House Emergency Response Coordinator Covid, to ask how he could help promote the vaccination campaign.  First, said Ford to CNN, the vaccines must have authorization that certifies safety, then they will be administered to priority cases. 

"Then President Bush will line up, and will gladly do so in front of the camera.”  Even the press officer of Clinton said that the former president is in favor of being publicly vaccinated in order to promote the campaign, reports CNN.  President Clinton will certainly get vaccinated as soon as possible, in accordance with the priorities set by health authorities.  "And he will do it publicly if this will help to urge all Americans to do the same," said press officer Angel Urena.

As for Trump’s predecessor, in an interview to be released today, Obama said that if Fauci says the vaccine is safe, he will believe him.  "It could also end up that I'll get vaccinated live, on film, getting vaccinated, just to show people that I have confidence in science, while I don't have confidence in getting covid," he said.
