Former US Presidents Barack Obama, George Bush, and Bill Clinton are willing to get their novel coronavirus vaccines on camera in a bid to steer public confidence in the vaccines once the Food and Drug Administration legalizes one.

In a chat with CNN, Freddy Ford, the chief of staff to Bush, said the former president reached out to the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, and Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House's COVID-19 response.

Bush sought ways to promote the vaccines and is willing to get vaccinated on camera once they are passed as being safe.

Former President Barack Obama also spoke on his willingness to get vaccinated once Fauci, who he trusts, ultimately certifies the vaccine is safe.

He further promised to take the vaccine when it is made for people who are less at risk and may end up taking it on television to show he trusts the science behind the vaccine.

Former President Clinton is also willing to take the vaccine in public. His press secretary, Angel Urena, said he would take the vaccine once it becomes available.

Moderna's announcement came following an earlier announcement by Pfizer and BioNTech.

Urena further said Clinton would not mind taking it in public if it will help to reassure Americans of the vaccine's safety and make them do the same.

The former presidents' moves to get vaccinated publicly comes on the heels of the groundbreaking developments of vaccines to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In mid-November, US company Moderna announced a new vaccine that offers 95% protection against the novel coronavirus.

Moderna's announcement came following an earlier announcement by Pfizer and BioNTech, which developed the first effective COVID-19 vaccine that offered 90% protection against the virus.

The vaccines' developments with their high percentages of effectivity added to the increasing confidence that vaccines can help in the fight to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Though there are still questions to be answered and other unclear details, Americans remain hopeful that there is an end in sight to the pandemic. They will also have their former presidents leading by example, once a vaccine becomes certified by the FDA.
