United States President Joe Biden received his first dose of corona vaccine to convince the public that inoculation is safe and urged them to get vaccinated after its availability in the country.
Moreover, on Monday, Biden’s wife Jill Biden also got vaccinated.
Vice-President Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, will receive their first dose of the vaccine next week.
On Oct 10, US Food and Drug Administration’s advisory panel had recommended the use of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine against coronavirus.
The agency’s advisory panel had voted 17-4 with one member remaining absent, in the favor of emergency use of the vaccine in the country most affected by the outbreak, which has already killed its 300,000 people.
Britain had also started its vaccination drive earlier this week. However, those who had received the vaccine suffered minor complications like allergic reactions while the participants of US voluntary trials also faced some issues. According to health officials, the real causes behind these side effects could not be properly identified yet.
