The former president was eager to get the vaccine after consulting with his doctors.
Despite both being nonagenarians, the lovebirds never shy away from doting on each other publicly. During Valentine's Day 2019, the aged couple showed off their love at an Atlanta Hawks game when they shared a lovely smooch for the kiss cam.
The duo's public display of affection on New Year came weeks after the United States' former President revealed he was looking forward to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
The 96-year-old is at a high risk of contracting the virus due to his old age and previous health issues. His opinion about the vaccine was disclosed in a statement released via his humanitarian organization, The Carter Center.
The press release stated that the former president was eager to get the vaccine after consulting with his doctors. Earlier last month, Jimmy and his wife publicly vouched for the vaccine, encouraging citizens to get immunized as soon as possible.
Jimmy, the 39th President of the United States, joined former commanders-in-chief Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, who all pledged to take the vaccine in public to assure citizens of its safety.Jimmy served as the president from 1977 to 1981 under the democratic party and during his tenure was known for having an ally in several music A-listers. Throughout his time in the White House, musicians like Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan were visitors.
