Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on MSNBC Monday that he is certain President-elect Joe Biden will get vaccinated and discussions about when that will take place are happening now.
“Well, that’s under discussion right now, about when the President-elect will take it,” said Fauci. “I’m certain that he will get vaccinated, I think it’s a question of when he’s going to do that. And we’re in discussions with that right now actually.”
About the vaccine: The US Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorization to Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccine Friday, and it's widely expected to grant EUA to Moderna's similar vaccine next week. Vaccinations in the US started this morning.
