Former President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, were vaccinated in January, shortly before leaving the White House, as confirmed by Trump’s environment to various media outlets on Monday.
The second dose was already received when they had left the presidential residence, although it has not transpired whether they received the Moderna vaccine or the Pfizer vaccine.
Both Donald and Melania Trump contracted the coronavirus at the end of September and the president spent three days hospitalized due to the symptoms he suffered.
However, he did not get the vaccine when the vaccination campaign began, as did other senior officials such as Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump has voiced skepticism about vaccines on several occasions, and experts have expressed concern about the effect his doubts could have on the population. However, in his speech on Sunday, the first in a political event after leaving the White House, Trump urged the population to get vaccinated.
