Vice President-elect Kamala Harris received the first dose of Moderna Covid-19 vaccination on Tuesday in Washington, joining President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President Mike Pence and other leaders who have been vaccinated.
Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff were administered the vaccine at the United Medical Center in Washington, DC. Patricia Cummings, a nurse whose parents are Guyanese immigrants, administered the vaccine to Harris, media reports said. The Center is located in a neighborhood that houses a significant African American population.
Soon after being injected, Harris exclaimed: “That was easy! I barely felt it.” Urging all Americans to get vaccinated, she said: “I trust scientists. And it is the scientists who created and approved this vaccine. So I urge everyone, when it is your turn, get vaccinated … ‘It’s about saving your life, the life of your family members, and the life of your community.”
