The end of the global pandemic is now in sight, with several companies releasing vaccines to help people stay protected from the dreadful COVID-19 virus.

Although many cannot wait to get vaccinated, others are hesitant to trust in the healthcare system. Recently, all living former American presidents, except Donald Trump, came together for an ad campaign encouraging Americans to get vaccinated.

Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and their first ladies appeared in the short clip to remove the skepticism some still have.

The one-minute clip began with Obama explaining that the shot will help combat the life-threatening disease and continued with Clinton sharing that he wants to resume his daily work and activities.

Obama also shared that he missed visiting his mother-in-law and would love to spend time with her again. Meanwhile, Bush revealed that he is “really looking forward to going to Opening Day in Texas Rangers Stadium with the full stadium.”

Several celebrities from the African-American community also volunteered to get the vaccine to convince others of its safety.

Although 96-year-old Carter did not talk on camera, his voice played in the background, saying, “I’m getting vaccinated because we want this pandemic to end as soon as possible.”

There are reportedly around 93.7 million vaccine doses already distributed in the United States from the companies Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson.

On Wednesday, current President Joe Biden announced that the government is set on purchasing 100 million more doses from Johnson & Johnson for all citizens to get vaccinated.

Several celebrities from the African-American community also volunteered to get the vaccine to convince others of its safety after losing trust in the healthcare system.

Among them are Kamala Harris, the first Black-Southeast Asian US Vice President, baseball star Hank Aaron, Marvel star Samuel Jackson, and “Today” anchor Al Rocker.
