U.S Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen Pence received dozes of the Pfizer vaccine earlier today at the Walter Reed Medical Centre.
On Wednesday, the White House announced that the Vice President will take the vaccine to boost confidence.
In a livestream video, the Vice President took the vaccine alongside the Surgeon General Jerome Adams on a day when the U.S approved its second vaccine in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Vice President has become the highest ranking U.S official to take the vaccine.
Meanwhile the U.S Food and Drugs Administration on Friday issued an emergency approval for the Moderna vaccine to be used. The vaccine has a 94% efficacy according to the company.
President Donald Trump is also open to taking the vaccine according to the White House but the White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the President is more interested in the vaccine getting to vulnerable people.
