US President Joe Biden received his third coronavirus vaccination Monday. The so-called booster was approved by drug watchdog FDA last week in the United States for over 65s.
long time, Biden insisted on allowing a third jab to improve the protection of vulnerable people against the virus. He wants to prevent a major new wave of infections coming in autumn.
For the third jab, Biden addressed the press present about U.S. coronavirus policy. “This is a pandemic of non-vaccinated people. People who dont get vaccinated are causing a lot of damage to the rest of the country.” The president said that people who have been fully vaccinated have good protection against illness due to Covid-19, “youll be safe and were going to do everything we can to keep it that way with boosters.”
Israel and the United Kingdom, among others, have already begun to set the boosters. In the UK, over 50s, people at risk and healthcare workers are allowed to get a third shot.
