Corona Virus: President Biden received a third dose of the vaccine

“I know it doesn’t look like that, but I’m over 65,” the 78-year-old joked.

US President Joe Biden received the third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday and told Americans, who still refuse to vaccinate, that they are harming the country. This was reported by Agence France-Presse.

Biden rolled up his left sleeve at the White House and received a third dose of the vaccine from Pfizer in accordance with a recently issued regulation that allows a third dose of the vaccine for people over 65 years old.

“I know it doesn’t look like that, but I’m over 65,” the 78-year-old joked.

Adults with high-risk health problems are also entitled to a third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, identifies residents, who are often exposed to the virus as a result of their work, AFP.

According to Biden, the problem is that a large percentage of Americans continue to refuse a single dose of the vaccine, encouraging the spread of the deadly, highly contagious coronavirus in the Delta nationwide. The US president said 77 percent of Americans have been vaccinated, which is not enough because about a quarter of them still refuse to be vaccinated.

“This large minority is doing great harm to a large number of us, the rest of the country,” Biden said. He said, “Please do the right thing.”

It is reported that Biden received the first dose of the vaccine from Pfizer last December and the second in January, when he was the newly elected president.

Biden said last week that about 60 million people in the United States are entitled to a third dose of Pfizer. He added that those who received vaccines from Moderna or Johnson & Johnson could receive a third dose after the study. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Friday that data for the third doses of vaccines from Moderna and J&J “will be evaluated in the coming weeks.
