WASHINGTON D.C.— Vice President Mike Pence was vaccinated for COVID-19 on Friday in a live-television event aimed at reassuring Americans the vaccine is safe.

In remarks after his shot, Pence called the speed with which the vaccine was developed “a medical miracle.”

Pence’s wife Karen and Surgeon General Jerome Adams also received shots during the televised White House event in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Adams, who is Black, emphasized “the importance of representation” in outreach to at-risk communities and encouraged Americans to avoid disinformation around the vaccines.  

Vice President Pence is now the most high-profile public official to receive the vaccine.  President-Elect Joe Biden is set to receive the vaccine sometime next week.
