Former U.S. President Donald Trump revealed for the first time what coronavirus vaccine he was vaccinated with.
“Well I was vaccinated by Pfizer, but I would be very happy with any of them (vaccines. – Ed.),” he said in an interview with the Internet portal Yahoo Finance.
At the same time, the former president did not rule out that he may be revaccinated.
Vaccines from three manufacturers – Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson – have been approved for use in the United States. Trump takes credit for their accelerated development and introduction into circulation to his administration.
The former president contracted the coronavirus last fall and was even briefly hospitalized. He and his wife Melania were vaccinated in January 2021, shortly before he left Washington, D.C., but didn’t announce it until March, Yahoo Finance recalls. By age, the 75-year-old Trump can also count on a third – booster – dose to boost his immunity.
Last Monday, current U.S. President Joe Biden, who is 78, received his third vaccination against the coronavirus. Last week, the nation’s medical authorities approved a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine for people over the age of 65 and a variety of at-risk groups of less advanced age.
The number of pandemic victims in the U.S. officially reached 700,000 on Friday.
“I thought it would be long over by now,” Trump said.
