US President-elect Joe Biden, 78, was vaccinated against COVID-19. Biden's wife Jill was also vaccinated. He was injected with the drug at ChristianaCare Hospital in Newark, Delaware. The vaccination was broadcast live on American TV channels.
“I'm doing this to demonstrate that people need to be ready to get vaccinated when drugs are available. There is nothing to worry about. I am looking forward to the second dose of the drug,”the politician said on CNN.
The President-elect of the United States was injected with the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine.
Biden noted that the administration of US President Donald Trump deserves "some praise" for the Warp Speed coronavirus vaccine production and distribution program. He also urged citizens to follow the advice of doctors, wear masks, maintain social distance and, if possible, refrain from travel.
On December 14, American media reported that White House employees will be vaccinated against coronavirus infection in the coming days. But US President Donald Trump said he has no plans to get vaccinated against COVID-19 yet. Trump believes that government officials should get access to the drug "a little later, if there is no particular need."
On December 13, the American immunologist Moncef Sloughi announced that the US authorities plan to vaccinate 100 million residents of the country against coronavirus by the end of the first quarter of 2021. According to the doctor, those in need will receive 40 million doses of the drug by the end of December, and another 50-80 million doses in January.]]>
