Oyogist.com has learnt that the United States infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci has urged former President Trump to instruct Republicans to get the Covid vaccine.
Dr Fauci, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said this during an interview with fox news on Sunday.
If Trump came out and said ‘Go and get vaccinated, it’s really important for your health, the health of your family, and the health of the country’, it seems absolutely inevitable that the vast majority of people who are his followers would listen to him.
“He’s such a strongly popular person. I cannot imagine that if he comes out that they would not get vaccinated.”
Dr Fauci Further commended the Trump administration for playing a vital role in getting vaccines for the country.
“It seems like an intrinsic contradiction, the fact that you have a programme that was started during his presidency, and he’s not out telling people to get vaccinated.”I wish he would. He has such incredible influence over people in the Republican party – it would really be a game-changer if he did,” Dr Fauci said.
