President-to-be of the United States, Joe Biden, is expected to be vaccinated against the coronavirus next week, news channel CNN reports. Biden plans to vaccinate herself against the deadly lung virus publicly.
“I don’t want to be ahead of the troops, but I want to make sure we show the American people it’s safe to take the vaccine,” Biden told reporters in his hometown of Wilmington on Wednesday. , I’m doing it in public so you can all witness it done,” said the 78-year-old president-to-be.
Insiders say that Biden will probably only get his vaccination next because things still need to be arranged for the vaccination to take place in public.
Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton also showed their willingness to have themselves vaccinated against the coronavirus in the long term in front of the camera.
On Monday, the first American was vaccinated against the coronavirus. It concerns the agent of the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer and the German biotechnology company BioNTech. The first shot was for a nurse at a Jewish medical centre in New York and was broadcast live on television.
Moncef Slaoui, one of the key advisers to the US vaccination campaign, said on Sunday that he is not yet confident enough Americans are getting vaccinated. “We are very concerned about the doubts we see,” Slaoui said. According to him, 75 to 80 percent of Americans must be vaccinated to achieve group immunity against the coronavirus.
