The three previous Presidents of the United States, prior to the Trump administration, come together to bring an important message to the world. They will receive the coronavirus vaccine, although reports have reported that more than 50% of Americans surveyed say they would not take the vaccine because of concerns about the new vaccine.
Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have all announced, according to CNBC, that not only will they take the new coronavirus vaccine as soon as it becomes available, but they will also be ready to film it to increase confidence United States to strengthen on the safety of the vaccine.
Obama, who appeared on SiriusXM's The Joe Madison Show, said, "I'm going to record it and I can record it on TV or have it filmed so people know I trust this science." The former president continued, "What I don't trust is Covid." The SiriusXM interview is expected to air on December 3rd.
Obama also mentions the doubt among blacks arising from the Tuskegee study in the 1940s. Black men inflicted with syphilis were not treated for decades because government researchers wanted to study the long-term effects of the disease.
"I understand historically everything that goes back to the Tuskegee experiments, etc., why the African American community would be a little skeptical," he said. "The fact is, vaccines mean we no longer have polio. And they are the reason we don't have many children dying from measles, smallpox and diseases that once decimated populations and communities."
According to NBC4NY, a Bush advisor Freddy Ford told NBC News: “First, the vaccines must be considered safe and given to priority populations. Then President Bush will line up for him and be happy to do so in front of the camera. "
A Clinton spokesman made a statement saying he “will definitely take a vaccine when it becomes available, based on the priorities set by public health officials. And he will do it in a public setting if it helps all Americans do the same. "
