Mr. Biden, who was masked, wore a long sleeve shirt, held up his sleeve, and received the shot in his left arm.

Incoming First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, who received the first course of the Pfizer BioNtech-Covid-19 vaccine earlier in the day, joined the president -elect.

Then he made brief comments about the pandemic. He did not respond to shouted questions and the pool was quickly led out of the room. The entire event was over in a matter of minutes.

Biden said he was vaccinated publicly to demonstrate there was nothing to worry about and that Americans should come forward and be vaccinated when shots are available.

Biden said despite the vaccine, “this is just the beginning,” urging Americans to listen to health experts by wearing face masks, social distancing and canceling unnecessary trips.

The President-elect will receive the second shot of the vaccine in 21 days, before he takes office on January 20, 2021.
