Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton are participating in an ad campaign urging Americans to get vaccinated when they can.

One advertisement features the four former presidents and their wives receiving the vaccine and the other shows Obama, Bush, and Clinton following President Joe Biden’s inauguration advising Americans to get the vaccine when it is available to them.

Bush noted the vaccine is now available to millions of Americans and will soon “be available to everyone.”

Obama stepped in to tell Americans “it will protect them” as well as those they love.

The former presidents described the things they are looking forward to after getting vaccinated.
