The vaccination process is still going on in the United States where many people are getting the vaccination for the COVID-19 virus. Now US vice President-elect Kamala Harris has received the first dose of the Moderna vaccine against the coronavirus.
According to a CNN report, Harris was vaccinated on Tuesday by Patricia Cummings, a clinical nurse manager at the United Medical Center. Harris also tweeted stating- “Today I got the Covid-19 vaccine. I am incredibly grateful to our frontline health care workers, scientists, and researchers who made this moment possible.”
Harris vaccination was broadcasted live on television and after receiving the shot she stated that she wants to encourage everyone to get the vaccine which is comparatively painless and happens very quickly and safe. She further informed that her husband Doug Emhoff would also be getting the first dose of the Moderna vaccine.
The CNN report quoted where Harris said “I want to remind people that right in your community is where you can take the vaccine, where you will receive the vaccine, by folks you may know, folks who are otherwise working in the same hospital where your children were born. Folks who are working in the same hospital where an elderly relative received the kind of care that they needed.”
The US Food and Drug Administration has conferred emergency use authorization (EUA) for two Covid-19 vaccines, where one from Pfizer/BioNTech and one from Moderna. According to the Johns Hopkins University US has registered a total of 19,299,960 COVID-19 cases and 334,830 deaths.
