Former President Donald Trump and former first lady Melania Trump were vaccinated for COVID-19 in January, The Post has confirmed.

The shots were administered privately at the White House before President Biden took office, a person with knowledge of the inoculations said.

Trump, 74, publicly battled the virus in October and was hospitalized for three nights at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The former first lady, 50, also tested positive for the virus in October but was not taken to the hospital for treatment.

Many political figures publicly took their shots to help boost public confidence, including Biden and former Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump delivered his first speech as an ex-president on Sunday to the Conservative Political Action Conference and touted spearheading the successful development of vaccines within a year of the pandemic’s outbreak.

The first COVID-19 vaccine, developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, was approved in December by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA has also approved vaccines by Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
