President-elect Joe Biden will get the coronavirus vaccine as soon as next week, transition officials said on Wednesday (16 December), as US authorities try to build public confidence in a measure that promises to stanch the deadly pandemic.

Meanwhile, Vice President got the jab on Friday. The injection was filmed and live-streamed on TV.

"I didn't feel a thing," Pence said. "Well done."

Pence, who wore a short-sleeved shirt and a face mask, sat in a chair next to an American flag and under a sign that said “SAFE and EFFECTIVE.”

He received the recently approved vaccine developed by Pfizer that is being distributed throughout the country.

"Karen and I hope this step today will be a source of confidence and of comfort to the American people," Pence said. "These days of hardship and heartbreak will, in a day not too far in the future, be put in the past."
