US VP-elect, Kamala Harris Gets Vaccinated on Live Television

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.

Harris will be the first African American and Indian-American to be in the White House.

It has also been discovered that the people there are the most reluctant to receive vaccination.

“So 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,” she said after receiving the vaccine manufactured by US firm Moderna.

Harris took her dose today.

“So I want to remind people that they have trusted sources of help and that’s where they will be able to go to get the vaccine.”

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.
