Earlier in the day, the American leader stressed that he had no plans to vaccinate against COVID-19 yet.
On December 14, the campaign for large-scale vaccination of the population against COVID-19 was launched in the United States. It is expected that the Moderna company’s vaccine may soon be approved for emergency use.
The day before it became known that the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended for emergency use a vaccine against coronavirus produced by Pfizer and BioNTech.
On the same day, Bloomberg reported that the U.S. president and other high-ranking U.S. officials will be able to be vaccinated against the coronavirus in the coming days.
It was claimed that the U.S. leadership would be vaccinated for 10 days so that if side effects occurred, they would not feel them at the same time.
