The election of President Donald Trump raised grave concerns for the future of vaccination in the United States. Trump had frequently embraced—both before and during his election campaign allegations linking childhood vaccines to autism. Shortly before his inauguration, he met with Robert F. Kennedy Jr, one of the most prominent and vocal critics of vaccine safety and current US vaccine policy, who announced after that meeting that he would lead a presidential “vaccine safety commission” charged with investigating these topics.
When it comes to mandatory COVID-19 vaccines President Trump respects the opinion of its citizens.
The president said Friday the US economy will begin reopening even without a vaccine. During his remarks, truckers staging a protest in Washington against state stay-at-home orders and social distancing practices that have collapsed the economy began honking their horns. Trump applauded the protesters, describing them as his supporters.
“Vaccine or no vaccine we’re back and we’re starting the process,” he said.
Trump once again insisted the coronavirus will somehow disappear even without vaccination, a prospect his own top health advisers have dismissed as unrealistic.
“I think we’re going have a vaccine in the pretty near future and if we do we’re going to really be a big step ahead, and if we don’t, it’ll be like so many other cases where you had a problem come in, it’ll go away at some point, it’ll go away,” Trump said.
He also indicated that vaccination won’t be mandatory. “Not everybody’s going to want to get it,” he said.

Some Americans question the safety of vaccination.
More than one in 10 U.S. adults would turn down a coronavirus vaccine, according to recent polling.
Research from Morning Consult found 14 percent said they would not get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The age group most likely to turn down such a treatment were those between 35 and 44, at 18 percent.
While in political splits, Republicans were most likely to turn it down at 20 percent, followed by independents at 16, then Democrats at 7.
