Kamala Harris, the Vice President-elect of the United States, on Tuesday received a COVID-19 vaccine on live television.
Registered nurse Patricia Cummings administers the COVID-19 vaccine to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
Harris, who is the first female Vice President, took the vaccine in an area of Washington DC that has a predominantly African American population.
Her choice of that area of the capital was meant to show her solidarity towards the residents there who have been hard-hit by the pandemic, with numerous deaths reported in the area.
It has also been discovered that the people there are the most reluctant to receive vaccination.
The newly elected President, Joe Biden received his on December 21st, also on television, as well as other top government officials, as they hope to bury any doubts and fears people have about the vaccine.
So far, there has been more than 19 million COVID-19 cases in the United States, while a staggering number of over 335, 000 deaths have been reported.
