President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden will receive the COVID-19 vaccine in front of the press on Monday, confirmed his spokesperson Jen Psaki. According to New York Post, Psaki, while talking to reporters on Friday, said that Biden and his wife will publicly receive COVID-19 jabs in their home state Delaware on December 21 in order to convince the American citizens about the safety of the drug. The incoming White House press secretary further added that the Bidens will thank the health care workers after taking the vaccine shots.
Psaki said that Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff will take the COVID-19 vaccine shots the following week. Harris and Emhoff will also take the jabs publicly to build confidence among the people. Biden had earlier said that he is willing to take the vaccine shot live on television if it helps in clearing any doubts that people might be having regarding the vaccine. Biden will become one of the first Americans who are not health care professionals to receive the jab on Monday.
