Former US presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have volunteered to get their COVID-19 vaccines on camera once it’s been deemed safe by the Food and Drug Administration in an effort to gain trust from Americans who are hesitant about the vaccine’s safety.

“I promise you that when it’s been made for people who are less at risk, I will be taking it,” Obama said. “I may end up taking it on TV or having it filmed, just so that people know that I trust this science.”

The United Kingdom announced a major step in its race to develop coronavirus immunizations on Wednesday, Dec. 2. The U.K. approved Pfizer and the German company BioNTech’s vaccine for emergency use with plans to begin mass immunizations as early as next week. Pfizer and BioNTech said earlier this week that they believe approval in the U.S. is coming later in December.
