THE President-Elect of the United States, Joe Biden is set to receive the second dose of the Covid vaccine on Monday, January 11.
His first injection was broadcast live on television on December 21 to build confidence and motivate the public to get vaccinated and his office announced the news of his latest jab on Sunday.
Biden, 78, told Americans at the time that “there was nothing to worry about” when he received the vaccine from Pfizer at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware. His team confirmed that the second inoculation will also be done on camera, without giving further details.
More than 374,000 people have died due to COVID-19 in the United States and Biden criticized President Donald Trump on Friday for the troubled start of the vaccination campaign, which he called a “parody.”
Some 6.7 million Americans have already received the first dose, well below the 20 million promised by the end of 2020. In a country like the United States, where 22.1 million doses have already been distributed, the logistical challenge to reach the population at risk and health workers is huge.
