Joe Biden gets Pfizer Covid vaccine live on TV and says Trump deserves credit for rollout

JOE Biden got Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine live on TV today as eight million jabs are set to be given out this week.

Biden was filmed getting the touted shot at at ChristianaCare Wilmington Hospital near his home base in Delaware on Monday as Donald Trump's Operation Warp Speed initiative is set to deliver millions of doses.



The Pfizer vaccine needs two shots to be given a few weeks apart in order to reach its 95 percent efficacy.

"The administration deserves some credit getting this off the ground," Biden told reporters as he received his first shot in Newark, Delaware today.

"I’m doing this to demonstrate that people should be prepared when it’s available to take the vaccine."

Biden's transition spokesperson Jen Psaki told CNN Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff would be getting their vaccine this week too.

It emerged that Biden would be getting the jab last week.

“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 said.
