Today marks the day that President Biden received his COVID-19 booster shot. When receiving his booster shot, administered by a nurse with the White House Medical Unit, president Biden reiterated the importance of the booster, and the possibility of Moderna and J&J making a booster shot of their own.
“Others will come later maybe, I assume,” said Biden before receiving the booster. He explained further that there’s a chance that Moderna and J&J will become open to the idea of creating booster shots like Pfizer has.
“Did you ever think the press would come to see someone get a shot?,” POTUS asked the assembled press in the South Court auditorium.
“I know it doesn’t look like it, but I am over 65,” Biden said jokingly as he explained why he was receiving a shot.
Biden reiterated the need for more people to get vaccinated, and noted a majority of Americans – 77 percent – have received at least one shot, while just 23 percent have not received a shot.
“That distinct minority is causing an awful lot of us, an awful lot of damage for the rest of the country,” Biden said, adding later: “Please do the right thing. Please get the shot.”
If you have already done so, by receiving both doses of Pfizer at least 6 months ago, you may now qualify to receive your booster shot. Below is a list of CDC guidelines for individuals that are considering receiving the booster anytime soon:
- 65 y/o and older.
- long-term care resident and staff.
- 18 y/o and older with underlying medical conditions.
- 18 y/o and older who work and live in a high-risk setting.
Whether you have received your vaccine and/or booster, or not, it is important to continue to stay safe during these trying times that soon shall pass.
