U.S. President Donald Trump and other senior U.S. officials will be offered to be vaccinated against coronavirus in the near future.
According to the newspaper, the vaccine will be offered to officials who perform vital functions for the country in all three branches of government. It is assumed that they will begin vaccinating on Monday, December 14, companies Pfizer and BioNTech, which received permission for emergency use in the United States. The agency notes that the vaccination will last for ten days, so that if any side effects occur, the vaccinated officials will not feel them at the same time. It is noted that such a measure will help convince Americans that the vaccine is harmless.
National Security Council spokesman John Ullit confirmed the plan. “The American people need to be assured that they are getting the same safe and effective vaccine that high-level officials of the United States government are getting,” he said.
Earlier, Robert Redfield, head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), gave the green light to begin vaccination against the coronavirus by signing off on the expert panel recommendations for the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech on Sunday, Dec. 13. The first vaccinations will begin as early as Monday, December 14.
The American leader contracted COVID-19 in October. His wife Melania also tested positive. A few days later, the president was found to have antibodies to the infection, and some time later, Trump reported that he had been cured of the coronavirus and was immune. Later it became known that the politician’s youngest son Barron had contracted COVID-19 and was asymptomatic.
