Joe Biden receives the third dose of the Covid vaccine for being a population at risk

Joe Biden received the third dose of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid-19 on Monday. The president of the United States has inoculated a third dose of the vaccine to reinforce his immunization against the coronavirus and after the puncture he has said that it is “safe and effective.” At first, it was announced that both the president and the first lady, Jill Biden, would receive the third dose of the vaccine. But this Monday he has only been inoculated, which has at least transcended the president.

Biden received the vaccine at the White House in front of the journalists summoned to witness the moment: “I know it does not seem like it, but I am over 65 years old, a lot older, and that is why today I get the booster injection,” he explained. . The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved the third dose of the Covid vaccine for people over 65 and adults at risk for a medical condition or their job. About 60 million people in the United States are eligible for a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine, Biden said last week.

About 23 percent of the U.S. adult population has yet to receive any doses of the vaccine, according to CDC data. “The reinforcement is important, but the most important thing we have to do is get more people to get vaccinated, ” said Biden. “This minority is causing enormous damage to the rest of the country,” he warned.

Biden has responded to questions from the press while receiving the injection, including one about the World Health Organization’s request to rich countries to prioritize early vaccines in poor countries over booster ones. Biden has responded that the United States has donated more doses than the rest of the countries of the world combined.

The tenant of the White House has expressed his hope that the third doses of other vaccines such as Moderna or Johnson & Johnson will be authorized shortly. Biden received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine on December 21 and a second on January 11, while he was still president-elect. In both cases, he did it in front of television cameras to encourage people to get vaccinated.
