Trump Encourages Supporters To Get Vaccinated

Recently, former president Donald Trump was booed abruptly by a few of his followers during his Alabama rally speech. It was a reaction to him encouraging people to get vaccinated and help curb the rising cases of COVID-19 in America.

“You know what? I believe totally in your freedoms. I do. You’ve got to do what you have to do. But I recommend, take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good. Take the vaccines,” Trump said.

“No, that’s okay. That’s all right. You got your freedoms. But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. Okay? I’ll call up Alabama, I’ll say, hey, you know what? But [the vaccine] is working. But you do have your freedoms you have to keep. You have to maintain that,” he continued.

Trump may be a proponent of democracy and freedom of choice but that doesn’t mean he will allow the people to do whatever they want and hurt themselves in the process. That is why he firmly believes that Americans should get the shot right now and protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately, there are a hard-headed few who would choose to endanger themselves by insisting on their rejection of science. 

Some people forget the fact that Trump was responsible for the swift discovery of the COVID-19 vaccine when he initiated the public-private partnership called “Operation Warp Speed.” The initiative aims to accelerate the development of the vaccine and to ensure its swift manufacturing, and distribution.

“I think if we didn’t come up during the Trump administration with the vaccine, you could have 100 million people dead, just like you had in 1917,” Trump said in a Fox News interview earlier this month.

Jack Colwell of Indiana-based news website South Bend Tribune stated in an opinion piece this weekend that president Trump deserves more recognition for bringing about a solution to this pandemic, hoping that Americans will heed the former president’s call.

“The former president’s Operation Warp Speed for vaccine development deserves praise from all in this divided land, including from Democratic critics who scoffed at the name and warned that Trump could be dangerously rushing development to save his faltering reelection bid,” Collwel wrote in his article.

“As the new virus variant sweeps through states with low vaccination rates and threatens impact nationally, more of the skeptical, now seeing the rise of hospitalizations and deaths, are going for shots. There are sad stories of some waiting too long and wishing they hadn’t as they fight for their lives,” Colwell added
