Medical freedom has become a force to reckon with, so much so that even Trump’s popularity won’t get many conservatives to hop aboard the vaccine bandwagon.
Speaking at a rally in Cullman, Alabama, on Saturday night, President Trump was briefly booed when he encouraged those listening to his speech to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I believe totally in your freedoms, I do, you gotta do what you gotta do, but I recommend take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good,” Trump said, provoking pushback from his supporters.
“That’s OK, that’s all right,” he added. “But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. But it is working. You do have your freedoms, you have to maintain that.”
