During a rally in Alabama, former President Trump briefly received boos by his supporters in after encouraging them to get vaccinated.

The fans of Donald Trump usually agree with his stance on topics, but there is division in agreement over what he has told people to do in terms of vaccinations. Over the weekend, the former president held a rally in Alabama where he advised the crowd to get inoculated while boasting that Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines were created within nine months of his presidency.

“You know what? I believe totally in your freedoms, I do. You got to do what you have to do, but I recommend: Take the vaccines. I did it – it’s good,” he said before a few boos were heard from the crowd. “That’s alright. You got your freedoms. But I happen to take the vaccine. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know. I’ll call Alabama say, ‘Hey you know what?’ but it is working. But you do have your freedoms.”

It isn’t quite a shock that Trump received this response. Per the CDC, Alabama currently has the second lowest rate of people who are fully vaccinated with 35%. Those that have at least one vaccination are at 47%.

Cullman, AL, where Trump hosted his rally, has been considered a high transmission area by state health officials. The city of Cullman also declared a local state of emergency on Thursday ahead of Trump’s rally.
