Bill Clinton tests positive for COVID-19, urges people to get vaccinated and boosted

Former President Bill Clinton announced that he tested positive for COVID-19, noted that he is thankful he is vaccinated and boosted, and encouraged others to get the vaccine jabs as well.

“I’ve tested positive for Covid. I’ve had mild symptoms, but I’m doing fine overall and keeping myself busy at home. I’m grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, which has kept my case mild, and I urge everyone to do the same, especially as we move into the winter months,” he tweeted.

Clinton served as president from early 1993 though early 2001. His wife Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election to Republican candidate Donald Trump — she had previously served as secretary of state during a portion of President Barack Obama’s White House tenure and, before that, as a U.S. senator from the state of New York.

Earlier this year, Hillary Clinton announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19.

“Well, I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’ve got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine. I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!” she tweeted in March.

Earlier this month, Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry tested positive for COVID-19.

“Secretary Kerry is self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt,” spokesperson Whitney Smith said in a statement, according to the New York Times. “He is fully vaccinated and boosted and experiencing mild symptoms.”

Last month, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky tested positive, took a course of Paxlovid, tested negative, but then tested positive again.

“COVID-19 vaccines may not prevent every infection, but they do provide us important protection against severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. My updated #COVID19 vaccine helped ensure my immune system was equipped to protect me against severe illness,” Walensky noted earlier this month in a tweet.
