US vice president-elect Kamala Harris received her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on live television on Dec 29 as the incoming Biden administration seeks to boost confidence in the shots. She received her first dose of the Moderna vaccine at the United Medical Center (UMC) in Washington DC.
“That was easy!” Harris exclaimed after receiving the shot and thanked the nurse saying that “she barely felt it.” She also thanked UMC for serving the community which she called was “often overlooked.” “I have now been vaccinated. As Joe [Biden] likes to say there is a big difference between the vaccine and the vaccinations. I want to encourage everyone to get the vaccine. It is relatively painless. It happens really quickly. It is safe,” Harris said while addressing reporters after receiving the jab.
