NEWARK: US President-elect Joe Biden received a Covid-19 vaccine live on television Monday in a campaign to boost Americans’ confidence in the jabs — and in marked contrast to President Donald Trump’s mixed messaging.
The 78-year-old incoming president got the Pfizer vaccine at the Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware. His wife Jill received the shot earlier, the presidential transition team said.
Biden told Americans “there s nothing to worry about” when they get vaccinated and that in the meantime they should keep wearing masks and “listen to the experts.”
He and the future first lady were the latest high-profile political figures publicly joining the first wave of vaccinations aimed at stopping a pandemic that has killed almost 318,000 Americans.
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband will be vaccinated next week.
Meanwhile, the current Vice President Mike Pence and his wife received vaccinations last week. However, Trump has not yet participated in the election.
The Republican leader is tired of advocating conspiracy theories. He believes that his election failure in Biden was the result of massive fraud. He cited the natural immunity he enjoyed after recovering from a round of coronavirus.
Last weekend, surgeon Jerome Adams (Jerome Adams) reiterated this argument, saying that because the president got antibodies from his infection, “this is actually a situation and we tell people that maybe you should postpone Get the vaccine.”
However, he has done little, even in terms of issuing statements, to support the campaign to overcome Americans vaccine skepticism.
His wife Melania Trump (Melania Trump) also signed Covid-19, so it is basically not on the issue.
Inconsistent news is part of Trump’s model. Trump has shifted from declaring himself a wartime leader to mocking scientists throughout the pandemic, insisting that the disease will not significantly change Americans’ daily lives. And disappear.
