US President-elect Joe Biden, 78, will be vaccinated against Covid-19 on Monday, his spokeswoman announced Friday.
Joe Biden will be vaccinated on Monday, in public, against the coronavirus. The spokesman for the president-elect of the United States said on Friday that he would receive a first dose of the vaccine in his stronghold, the state of Delaware. His wife will be vaccinated at the same time as him.
Future Vice President Kamala Harris will be vaccinated the following week, as Europe sees several of its leaders in quarantine before Christmas. A few days ago, the victorious presidential candidate, who will take office on January 20, 2021, said that he was ready to be vaccinated in public if necessary. This is what is planned according to his spokeswoman.

"This Monday, President-elect Joe Biden and (his wife) Dr. Jill Biden will receive a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in (the state of) Delaware," said Jen Psaki, specifying that the event would take place in public to send the message that the vaccine is safe. Joe Biden immediately took a position in favor of a vaccine that he wanted free for all.
US Vice President Mike Pence, responsible for coordinating the fight against the pandemic from the White House in recent months, received the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine on Friday, an injection broadcast live on television as the United States is preparing to authorize a second vaccine. The president of the Democrats in the United States was also vaccinated on Friday. "Today, with confidence in science ... I received the vaccine against Covid-19," tweeted Nancy Pelosi, 80.
