Four former US presidents-Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and their spouses again called on Americans to be vaccinated against coronavirus, starring in social advertising, reports NBC with reference to the videos received at its disposal.
One minute-long promotional video shows former US presidents and their spouses being vaccinated against the virus. In another 30-second clip, Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama stand outside Arlington National Cemetery in suburban Washington and talk about the importance of vaccination.
“To get rid of this pandemic, it is important that our fellow citizens get vaccinated,” says Bush Jr. in one of the videos. “So roll up your sleeve and contribute,” he adds.
Former US President Donald Trump and his wife did not participate in this advertising campaign. Earlier it was reported that Trump was vaccinated against the coronavirus back in January; as president of the United States, his wife was also vaccinated.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the United States continues to lead the world in both the number of people infected with coronavirus (more than 29 million) and the number of deaths from it (more than 525 thousand). At the end of February, the White House announced that in connection with the pandemic, US President Joe Biden extended the operation of the large-scale disaster regime.
