Former President Donald Trump and first lady Melania received the coronavirus vaccine in January, according to reports. Citing “a Trump adviser,” the New York Times and Axios reported Monday that the couple was vaccinated in January when they were still in the White House.
In December, White House officials verbally expressed Trump was inclined to get the vaccine but believed he should not be a priority after contracting and recuperating from the virus in October. “He will take it when health experts and his White House medico ask him to do so,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany verbally expressed at the time. “He is very open to taking this but withal wants to prioritize our front-line workers.”
Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, were vaccinated on camera in December, as was incoming President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. It remains obscure why Trump did not receive the vaccine live on camera.
Trump endorsed the vaccine in a verbalization at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, reminding adherents it was developed during his administration. “Everybody, go get your shot,” he said.
