Former United States President Donald Trump and his wife Melania were vaccinated against the coronavirus in January before leaving the White House, an advisor to the former president said on Monday.
“President Trump and the first lady were vaccinated at the White House in January,” the advisor said without providing any further details.
Joe Biden, who took over as president on January 20, was vaccinated publicly against the coronavirus on December 21 but the Trumps’ vaccinations had not been revealed previously.
In his first speech since leaving the White House, Trump on Sunday said everyone should get vaccinated against Covid-19, which has left more than 500,000 people dead in the US.
Some of Trump’s supporters have expressed skepticism about being vaccinated.
Trump came down with Covid-19 in early October and was hospitalized for several days in a suburb of Washington.
