As we all heard recently, there has been a new development and trials for a COVID vaccine. Many people are saying “how would we know if this works”, “we can’t trust this” “it’s all fake news” “the pandemic isn’t real therefore there’s no vaccine and I won’t be taking it because it doesn’t work.” After hearing all these remarks, Former Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and now President-elect Joe Biden have said that they plan to be injected with a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it’s available, as a demonstration to the public that it is safe and reliable. “If Anthony Fauci tells me this vaccine is safe, and can vaccinate, you know, immunize you from getting Covid, absolutely, I’m going to take it ….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” Obama said in an interview with SiriusXM Radio. 

CNN reports that President Bush has reached out to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is the head of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that Former President Bush is “gladly” in getting his vaccine on camera once it is proven safe and given to the more essential and priority populations. 

Meanwhile, Trump seems to see how much time, dedication, and effort is taken in place when the vaccines are being developed, his most recent predecessors realize that the pandemic does not stop at the development of a vaccine, it will stop when enough people have taken the vaccine to interrupt the virus’ spread. Vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna-NIH are expected to be approved by US authorities shortly. A top science official said Wednesday the United States hopes to have immunized 100 million people by the end of February 2021.
