WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump again urged people to be vaccinated against the novel Coronavirus, saying he would recommend vaccination to “a lot of people that don’t want to get it, and a lot of those people voted for me.”

In an interview Tuesday night on Fox News, Trump acknowledged that people were free to decide for themselves whether they would be vaccinated against COVID-19.

“We have our freedoms and we have to live by that and I agree with that also. But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine and it is something that works,” he said.

Republican opposition to receiving the vaccine is strong. A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 42% of Republicans say they probably or definitely will not get the shot, compared with 17% of Democrats — a 25-point split.

Trump has promoted vaccination before. When he appeared Feb. 28 at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, he said, “Everybody, go get your shot.”

  1. Everyone should take the vaccine for the disease that has a 99% chance of survival.

    The vaccine makers are Fully , 100% legally liable if something goes wrong.

    It has gone through lots of testing. Usually they go thru years of testing, but ….

    Before the election when the media was talking about the questionable vaccine that Trump was bringing to market… that was a different vaccine, … this one on the market , it’s different.

    Why would you trust a guy who can’t even keep viruses off your computer (Bill Gates-Microsoft), to be a lead voice for vaccines for your body?

    MY BODY, MY CHOICE , Remember….
