Seventy-eight-year-old Biden received the first dose last December 21 and the second three weeks later, as did his wife Jill. Last Friday, the president called on Americans who have the right to revaccination to take advantage of this and get a third dose of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine.
“The most important thing we need to do is get more people vaccinated,” the White House chief said before the medics gave him a third dose. He added that after the first two he had no side effects. According to him, the first lady will also receive a booster dose of the vaccine, but she was at work on Monday, she teaches at Northern Virginia Community College, the AP agency reported.
Revaccination with this vaccine was approved for selected groups by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last Wednesday.
Infected spokesman of diplomacy
US Department of State spokesman Ned Price, meanwhile, said he had been tested for coronavirus on Monday and would be quarantined for the next ten days. He was tested after showing relatively mild symptoms of covid-19 in the morning. Price, who is vaccinated against covid-19 according to the AP agency, attended the UN General Assembly last week together with the head of American diplomacy Antony Blinken.
In New York, Price and Blinken attended a number of events, including meetings with foreign ministers and senior officials from more than 60 countries. For Blinken, on the other hand, tests today did not show coronavirus, as did other members of a large American delegation.
