U.S. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris officially received the first of two doses of COVID-19 vaccination on Tuesday.

The move is seen as an attempt by the incoming Biden administration to boost confidence in the inoculation even while warning it will be months before it is available to all.
Biden had some days ago also taken the first dose of his two inoculations  to help shore up public confidence about the vaccine and critics saying it is causing more harm than good because of reactions.

Senator Harris, who is Black and Asian-American, will become the second high-profile person from an ethnic minority background to receive the vaccine after Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Dec. 18.

Democratic President-elect Joe Biden, who takes office on Jan. 20, has said he will make the fight against the coronavirus, which has infected more than 19 million Americans and killed over 334,000, his top priority.
