Biden to get COVID-19 vaccine shot on TV

President-elect Joe Biden will get inoculated with Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine on live television Monday, after he and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris receive the President's Daily Brief. "I don't want to get ahead of the line, but I want to make sure we demonstrate to the American people that it is safe to take," Biden said. Vice President Mike Pence got vaccinated on TV Friday, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and other members of Congress were vaccinated later Friday and over the weekend. Harris and her husband are expected to get the vaccine next week. President Trump has not scheduled a vaccination or committed to getting inoculated.
