US President Donald Trump is ready to get the Corona virus vaccinated, but his priority is to ensure vaccination of personnel working at the forefront and those at highest risk. The White House gave this information.
The US had allowed emergency use of the vaccine by leading pharmaceutical company Pfizer and its German subsidiary BioNotech. The vaccine was first administered to a nurse in New York.
White House press secretary Kellig McEnany said on Tuesday, “The president has said he is ready to take the vaccine dose.” He has expressed his desire about this in private conversations and this is known publicly. But still he has not recovered from Covid-19. He was asked whether President Trump was considering getting the vaccine publicly to inspire people.
McAnany said, “When his medical team allows it, he will take the vaccine as soon as possible.” But their priority is to ensure vaccination of personnel working on the front and people at highest risk.
Trump was infected with Covid-19 in October, following which he was hospitalized. Former President Bill Clinton, George Bush and Barack Obama, along with newly elected President Joe Biden, have spoken publicly about vaccination.
