Former President Donald Trump rejected the skepticism of an interlocutor about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine against covid-19 during a new interview, and assured that the “vaccine works” and that “people do not die when they receive it.”
“Look, the results of the vaccine are very good. And if you get (covid-19), it occurs in a very mild way. People do not die when they receive the vaccine,” he said in a conversation with Candace Owens, from The Daily Wire, which was published on Tuesday
“Those who get very sick and need to be hospitalized are those who don’t get vaccinated. But it’s still their choice. And if you get vaccinated, you’re protected,” he said.
This is the latest endorsement from Trump, who repeatedly rejected opportunities to urge Americans, and especially his supporters, more strongly about the importance of getting vaccinated. Cases and hospitalizations are on the rise in the United States due to the delta and omicron variants. But the reports largely indicate much milder effects for those vaccinated and boosted, compared to those who are not.
