In order to imbibe people’s trust over the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine, US President-elect Joe Biden will receive his first dose of the vaccine today on live television. Biden stated that this will be a demonstration to convince American citizens of the vaccine’s safety. “I don’t want to get ahead of the line, but I want to make sure we demonstrate to the American people that it is safe to take,” he was quoted saying.

Biden along with his wife Jill will also thank the health care workers of the facility where they will receive the shots, the reports added. Last week, the government officials joined the vaccination campaign to be the first Americans to be inoculated against COVID-19.

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband are expected to receive their first dose of vaccination next week. However, President Donald Trump seems to have been sidelined from last week. Earlier, talking about the vaccine Trump had tweeted that he was not yet ready to take it but he looked “forward to doing so at the appropriate time.”

Meanwhile, a second vaccine, produced by Moderna, will start arriving in the States, and join Pfizer in the nation’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has now caused more than 317,000 deaths in the United States and has turned life upside down around the globe. According to research and studies, both the new Moderna vaccine and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine appeared to be effective and safe. Considering their use, the vaccination requires two doses several weeks apart. The second dose must be from the same company as the first. 

The second wave has hit majorly in the United States reporting more than 219,000 positive cases per day on average. And has reported 1.7 million deaths worldwide.
