Trump says if asked, he will take a coronavirus vaccine first
President Trump on Wednesday said if he is one of the first people to receive a coronavirus vaccine, he will either be looked at as being "so selfish" or "very brave." Speaking to Fox News medical contributor Marc Siegel, Trump said if he isn't at the front of the line to get the vaccine, people will take that as a sign he "doesn't believe in the program." If he is vaccinated early, though, it could also be a problem. "If I'm the first one, they'll say, 'He's so selfish, he wanted to get the vaccine first,'" Trump said. "Then other people would say, 'Hey, that's a very brave thing to do.'" Still, Trump said he will go along with whatever members of the coronavirus task force suggest, telling Siegel that "if they wanted me to and thought it was right, I'd take it first or I'd take it last." His comments aired after Pfizer and BioNTech announced Wednesday morning that they reached a $1.95 billion agreement with the U.S. government for 100 million doses of a potential COVID-19 vaccine.
