Trump Told Crowd to Get Vaccines During Alabama Rally

Last Saturday, Trump showed up for a rally at Cullman, Alabama. He recommended supporters get vaccines. “And you know what? I believe totally in your freedoms. I do. You’ve got to do what you have to do. But I recommend taking the vaccines. I did it. It’s good. Take the vaccines.”

As a result, some attendees booed the suggestion. However, Trump was quick to clarify his recommendation. “No, that’s OK. That’s all right. You got your freedoms. But I happened to take the vaccine.

If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. OK? I’ll call up Alabama, I’ll say, hey, you know what? But [the vaccine] is working. But you do have the freedoms you have to keep. You have to maintain that,” he added. 

Alabama Among States With COVID-19 Surge

Many states largely ignored the federal government’s call for Americans to get vaccines against COVID-19. The issue of vaccination, especially one with only an Emergency Use Authorization, remains a thorny issue among many Americans.

This is especially true in states such as Alabama, which are experiencing COVID-19 surges in recent weeks.  

In particular, Alabama is currently experiencing increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases. Last Thursday, the state registered 3,799 new cases. In contrast, daily cases averaged in the hundreds in June this year.

Alabama has the lowest vaccination rate among the states, Only 36% of the population received full vaccination. Republican Governor Kay Ivey said that “unvaccinated folks” are mainly the ones causing the resurgence in the state. 

US South Posts Surges in COVID-19 Cases

Large areas in the Southern United States are reporting increasing COVID-19 cases. The highly infectious Delta variant helped drive up numbers as some areas largely ignored calls for wearing masks and getting vaccines.

Cullman, the host city for Saturday’s rally, is an example. The city is currently reporting increased cases, matching its previous high last December. Last Thursday, Cullman declared a state of emergency due to the virus.

A vaccine survey published by the Kaiser Family Foundation showed that a large group of Republican voters oppose COVID-19 vaccines. Even as 57% of Republicans already completed one-shot, 40% declared they won’t get vaccines or will wait it out. Outside of uninsured Americans under 65 years, this group is the largest among 23 demographics. 

Trump Endorses Vaccinations

Meanwhile, Trump previously made it known he took COVID vaccines. The former president got diagnosed with COVID-19 late last year during his term. Even as he recommended Americans to get the vaccines, he always matched his recommendation with a caveat that freedom comes first. 

Last week, in an interview on Fox Business, Trump also recommended Americans get vaccines. However, he also said that booster shots after completing the vaccination are a “money-making operation” for Pfizer.

Pfizer is one of the manufacturers of COVID-19 vaccines used in the US.  In addition, the pharmaceutical company is not part of the firms that partnered with the US government for Operation Warp Speed.

    It’s a recommendation like every time I go to the doctor they ask if I have gotten the flu shot or the shingles shot or the Covid shot they don’t push it they just recommend it trump doesn’t want to force it or take our freedom of choice he just recommends it

  • Charlotte Luttman says:

    Government should not give medical advice or commands. This is not there business.

  • Karen says:

    President Trump is an extremely intelligent man and I don’t believe he would have gotten the vaccine had he thought it was unsafe, all he and others can do is give the facts, scientific, facts and get rid of the ridiculous conspiracy theory’s, a majority of people have cell phones and a computers, the ridiculous theory of a microchip is asinine, if “they” want to find you they can track you anywhere, don’t need a chip to do it, people have no problem, putting “poison” in their bodies that they know for certain will kill them, for example, booze, nicotine, weed, polluting the air so people need to stop being selfish and wait for the vaccinated to carry their sorry behinds, just like welfare and government handouts!!!

  • Deb says:

    Nobody should give advice to endanger others by recommending that the people blindly take such a dangerous irreversible experimental jab! Anyone who has done even the basic research can easily find out how many have died or experienced dramatic side effects from this! I’ve SEEN with my own eyes the blood clots and strokes caused by this injection-family!

  • David says:

    So he’s pushing the poson too. If it’a so good why have so many people died? Why are people hemorraging, going blind, suffering from renal failure? Nothing here but another politician advocating for something he shouldn’t. The government foesn’t belong in our medical privacy. Aren’t they the ines who established HIPPA laws? Funny!

  • sherril henderson says:

    Use your own common logic to make your decision, no one should be forced against their will.I was convinced by my long time doctor, but sometimes they are wrong. I haven’t had any side effects but everyone should make up their own mind. Its hard these days to believe anything you here on TV.

  • Jayna Dinnyes says:

    No.I do not believe in taking anything COVID-19 and I won’t.
    Trump endorsing the taking of it is just another proof to me of how
    bad he is for America. Furthermore, I do not believe that he or his family
    took the vaccines or ever had the virus.
    Yeah. Very early on I wrote to him about taking a cheap natural supplement
    to prevent all Coronavirus’ including COVID-19. It has for me since 2009.
    I write about it publicly on MeWe after being kicked off of Facebook
    for doing so. STAY WELL NATURALLY!
    ETERNAL LIFE BLESSINGS FOR YAHWEH’S SAINTS!

  • Sam says:

    If it’s sooo “good” or “safe” why were the repeat serial felons (not my name, the legal court systems name) granted immunity feom liability? All of the drug manufacturers have repeatedly been found guilty of KNOWINGLY putting dangerous/deadly products to the public, and have paid billions in damages. If your Dr. Tells you to get it, ask them about the history of corona virus vaccines since 2000, and ask them what thr long term risks are, say 1 year, 3, or 5 years. Oh, by the way, anyone and anything injected with the others didn’t make it more than 4 years.

  • Mary Galeener says:

    I’m so disappointed. This is an experiment on the people. If Trump had Covid he had natural immunity. Why did he take it? His Hydroxychloriquine advice was good at the beginning. Now I don’t know whose side he is on.

  • BBA says:

    Trump better be damn careful or he’ll lose his base over night!! I’m not loyal to anyone who believes in this bullshit.

  • Chisel says:

    Its a suggestion, and most importantly HIPPA law, its my body my choice! Nobody’s business, quit being sheep and stand up for yourself

  • Dee says:

    They are all in on it together.
