President-elect Joe Biden received the Covid-19 vaccine Monday in a televised appearance from a Delaware hospital in which he encouraged the public to get vaccinated.
“There’s nothing to worry about,” he said.
Mr. Biden received the first of two doses after top public health officials recommended that he be fully vaccinated before his Jan. 20 inauguration. He was joined by his wife, Jill Biden, who received the first course of the vaccine earlier in the day, his transition team said.
“We owe these folks an awful lot,” Mr. Biden said of the medical professionals at ChristianaCare Hospital in Newark, Del.
