Trump made this known on Saturday in an interview with Yahoo Finance Live.

In March, an adviser of Trump had told NBC News that the former US president and Melania Trump, his wife, quietly received COVID-19 vaccine in January.

But the type of vaccine received by Trump and Melania was not known.

“Well, I got the Pfizer and I would have been happy with any of them,” he said during the Yahoo interview, adding that he would have been happy with any of the vaccines.

Asked if he will get the booster shot, Trump said: “If I felt that it was necessary and let’s see where this whole thing is going.”

Speaking of his experience when he had COVID-19 in October 2020, Trump said it was not “pleasant” but that he “recovered from it pretty well”.

The former US president said he is surprised by the COVID-19 statistics in the US, adding that he thought the virus would have gone before now.

He said vaccine-hesitant Americans do not trust the administration of President Joe Biden, claiming that there was a rush to get the vaccine when he was president.

“I was surprised, I thought it would have been gone long before now. You don’t hear Biden being criticised that this thing is lingering on. In some cases, numbers are very large,” Trump said.

“When I was president, everybody wanted to get the vaccine. There was a rush to get it… after I left people didn’t want to take it and it is very interesting and I think it is because they don’t trust Biden, they don’t trust the administration.”

In August, Trump’s supporters booed him at a rally in Alabama, after he recommended that they should take the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to data obtained from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 185.1 million people have been fully vaccinated in the country, while 4.74 million people have received booster doses.
