(Meredith) – Former President Donald Trump said he “isn’t against” a COVID-19 booster shot but that he “probably won’t” get one if the US authorizes it for use among most Americans.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump said, “I feel like I’m in good shape from that standpoint—I probably won’t… I’ll look at stuff later on. I’m not against it, but it’s probably not for me."
Trump and former first lady Melania Trump both received their COVID-19 vaccines in January.
For now, the FDA has only authorized a COVID-19 booster shot for individuals who are immunocompromised.
During a rally in Alabama last month, Trump recommended people get vaccinated, where he was met with boos.
“I recommend, take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good. Take the vaccines,” he told the crowd.
