Biden and incoming First Lady Jill Biden received the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine last week as medical experts had suggested that Biden and Harris stagger the first doses for security purposes, according to the transition.

Vice President Mike Pence also received a vaccine shot earlier this month with cameras rolling.

The White House says President Trump is willing to get vaccinated but that he wants to save the initial supplies for frontline workers.

US Surgeon General Dr Jerome Adams also said last week that Trump’s doctors have advised him to wait since the president received special antibody treatment after contracting the virus in October.
