VP Pence, Surgeon General Receive Coronavirus Vaccination

Vice President Mike Pence was given the first dose of Pfizer’s two-shot coronavirus vaccine Friday by the Walter Reed National Medical Center staff at the White House.

“I didn’t feel a thing,” the 61-year-old vice president said after receiving his shot, CNN reported. “Well done, and we appreciate your service to the country.”

In addition to Pence, second lady Karen Pence and Surgeon General Jerome Adams received injections also. The three were told they will receive a confirmation of their vaccination, would need a second shot in three weeks and to expect soreness in their arms.

President Trump, who was hospitalized with COVID-19 in October, didn’t attend the event and will not get vaccinated until it is recommended by the White House medical team.

President-elect Joe Biden and incoming first lady Jill Biden will receive the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine Monday, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff to get it the following week, a Biden spokesperson said Friday.
