Pence Publicly Receives COVID-19 Vaccine: ‘Beginning of the End’ of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Some top Trump administration officials have now received the COVID-19 vaccine, seeking to build up confidence in the American people.

On Friday morning, Vice President Mike Pence was joined by his wife Second Lady Karen Pence and U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams in receiving the vaccine publicly.

“I didn’t feel a thing,” Pence said after getting the shot, adding, “We’re gathered here today at the end of a historic week to affirm to the American people that hope is on the way.”

The vice president added, “I also believe that history will record that this week was the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic. But with cases rising across the country, with hospitalizations rising across the country, we have a ways to go.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, member of the White House coronavirus task force and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was also in attendance at the event. He also delivered remarks.

Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said on the “Today” show on Friday that he hopes to get the COVID-19 vaccine soon.

“I’m ready to go,” he said, adding, “I’m going to get vaccinated as soon as I can. I hope that’s going to be within the next few days to the early part of next week.”

President Donald Trump shared earlier this week that he will get the COVID-19 vaccine at some point but is not currently scheduled to.

“I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time,” he wrote on Twitter late Sunday.

  1. There is little reason to believe, as we enter into what will be the darkest period of the pandemic so far in the U.S., that we are, in any way, shape, or form, at the “beginning of the end”.
    Not only is this factually incorrect, it is HIGHLY journalistic and irresponsible to be so characterizing it, increasing the likelihood that some people will start letting their guard down, assuming that they can just coast until the vaccine comes, a vaccine that has almost no chance of actually conferring any long term immunity, and will need to be taken repeatedly every year or so, to keep the pandemic from rekindling and raging again.
    People will die because of this headline.

  2. So the Vice Puppet gets a vaccine for a virus that he and his good ole boys refused to admit existed. His flock is still out there saying Covid isn’t real, it’s fake news….even while being cared for in a hospital! Hopefully his herd will follow him so more people won’t die.
