Did Lord Voldemort get boosted? Is he commanding his followers to?

Donald Trump Says He Got Covid-19 Vaccine Booster Shot

Former president had previously said he was unlikely to get the additional dose

Former President Donald Trump held a rally in Cullman, Ala., on Aug. 21. He was previously been booed by rallygoers after encouraging Covid-19 vaccines.

Former President Donald Trump said he received a Covid-19 vaccine booster shot.

Mr. Trump said he got the booster in comments during an onstage interview Sunday with former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly on their speaking tour.

“Both the president and I are vaxed and, uh, did you get the booster?” Mr. O’Reilly asked him. “Yes,” Mr. Trump said.

“I got it, too,” Mr. O’Reilly replied, which appeared to prompt some in the audience to boo.

“Oh, don’t, don’t, don’t,” Mr. Trump said, waving his hand toward the crowd in Dallas. “Look, we did something that was historic. We saved tens of millions of lives world-wide—we, together, all of us. Not me, we,” Mr. Trump said about his administration’s push to quickly develop Covid-19 vaccines.

“This was going to ravage the country far beyond what it is right now,” he said. “Take credit for it…It’s great. What we’ve done is historic,” he said.

Mr. Trump received a Covid-19 vaccination before leaving the White House earlier this year. He previously said he was unlikely to get a booster shot.

“I feel like I’m in good shape from that standpoint—I probably won’t,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in September. “I’ll look at stuff later on. I’m not against it, but it’s probably not for me.”

Representatives for Mr. Trump didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

His remarks come as the new Omicron variant spreads in the U.S. and around the world. The variant has prompted new restrictions on travel and social interactions in many countries. The World Economic Forum said Monday that it would postpone next month’s annual meeting in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos for the second consecutive year.

Mr. Trump, a Republican, has previously encouraged his supporters to get vaccinated. He was briefly booed at a rally in Alabama in August after urging attendees to get a Covid-19 shot. “You got to do what you have to do, but I recommend: Take the vaccines. I did it. It’s good,” he said.

Mr. Trump and then-first lady Melania Trump tested positive for Covid-19 in October 2020, before vaccines were available. He was subsequently hospitalized for several days.

Fox News parted ways with Mr. O’Reilly in 2017. The network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, and Journal parent News Corp share common ownership.
