Biden receives Covid booster shot live on camera

78 year-old Biden qualifies for booster vaccine under new guidance

CDC Director Dr Rochelle Walensky authorised the distribution of Pfizer and BioNTech’s booster shots for people in high-risk occupational and institutional settings, CNBC reported.

However, the WHO was against rolling out booster shots, suggesting that extra doses should go to countries with low vaccination rates.

Around 60m Americans are eligible for the vaccine, including healthcare workers, teachers and others.

Biden has pleaded with Americans to get their booster shots.

“The bottom line is that if you’re fully vaccinated, you’re highly protected now from severe illness, even if you get COVID-19,” Biden said. “You’re safe and we’re going to do everything we can to keep it that way with the boosters.”

Meanwhile, the Delta variant continues to make its way through America, keeping the economy from gaining momentum.

As of today, the US has seen 42.9m cases and 688,000 deaths.
