Former President Jimmy Carter to Receive Coronavirus Vaccine

Former President Jimmy Carter will be vaccinated.

The 96-year-old former President of the United States will receive the COVID-19 vaccine, his foundation confirmed Thursday (December 17).

“After consulting with his doctors, President Carter is looking forward to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to him,” the center said in a statement.

The news comes as Vice President Mike Pence received the vaccine on-air live on Friday (December 18).

President Donald Trump, who was recently treated for coronavirus with an antibody cocktail, will not be vaccinated until it is recommended by the White House medical team, a White House official told CNN.

The FDA recently approved the coronavirus vaccine by Pfizer in the United States.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that this British celeb baker also received the vaccine.
