Leadership is about setting the right example. With this in mind, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama plan to receive a COVID vaccine from the former president while filming.
The reason is obvious. It’s exciting that multiple strains of the vaccine are available. You will not achieve your goal if not enough people make use of it.
There are several groups who appear to be suspicious of getting vaccinated. Republican voters are cautious after the entire party spread misinformation about COVID-19 and downplayed the danger of the virus.
African Americans, a group that has been hit incredibly hard by COVID, have also had vaccination concerns in the past. Surveys have shown that very few of them plan on receiving the vaccine.
That’s why Joe Biden also plans to show leadership by publicly vaccinating himself. He told reporters on Wednesday: “I don’t want to get any further, but I want to make sure we show the American people that it is safe to take. If I do, I’ll make it public so that all of you can see how I did it. “
This is supposed to happen next week. But Mike Pence will get a public vaccine before Biden. The Vice President, his wife Karen, and Surgeon General Jerome Adams will be vaccinated at the White House Friday afternoon.
