    Biden may get publicly vaccinated against Covid

    United States President-elect Joe Biden said on Wednesday that his team is working on a plan to get publicly vaccinated against the novel coronavirus so that the people of America can witness it.

    Asked when he will get the vaccine, Biden said, “We are working on that right now.”

    Biden said he wants to ensure his vaccination will demonstrate to the American people that the vaccine is safe.

    “They are working on that plan right now. And when I do it, I will do it publicly so you all can actually witness my getting it done,” he said.

    On Tuesday, Biden announced that he will publicly get vaccinated and noted that he had been advised by Dr Anthony Fauci to do so sooner rather than later.

    Pfizer is involved in a massive effort to get millions of doses of its coronavirus vaccine -jointly developed with Germany’s BioNTech – out after the shots became the first immunisation against the coronavirus approved by US authorities over the weekend.

    Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W Bush and Bill Clinton announced earlier this month their intention to get vaccinated during a live television broadcast.

    Following their lead, Biden said he too would take a vaccine on camera.

    The Pfizer vaccine is being administered first to healthcare workers and long-term residents of nursing homes.

    While some 100 million Americans are expected to be immunised by spring, resistance is also anticipated from at least half of the population fearing the vaccine’s safety and more than 20 potential side effects.
