“I had a scratch on my throat for a few days, but I feel good otherwise,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “Michelle and I are grateful that we were vaccinated and strengthened.”
I just tested positive for COVID. I have a scratch on my throat for a few days, but I feel good otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful for the vaccination and the boost, and the test was negative.
It is a reminder to get vaccinated if you have not already been vaccinated, even when the incidence is declining.

Obama encouraged more Americans to get vaccinated against coronavirus, despite declining US infection rates There were an average of about 35,000 infections last week, down sharply from mid-January when the average was closer to 800,000.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 75.2% of US adults are fully vaccinated and 47.7% of those fully vaccinated receive a booster vaccine. The CDC relaxed its indoor coverage guidelines in late February, taking a more holistic approach that meant that the vast majority of Americans live in areas without recommending indoor public coverage.
