Biden gets Covid-19 vaccine as US inoculation effort mounts

US President-elect Joe Biden received his first injected dose of the COVID-19 vaccine live on television on Monday in an effort to boost confidence in its safety ahead of its wide distribution next year.

Biden has said he would make the fight against the coronavirus, which has killed more than 315,000 Americans and infected more than 17.5 million, his top priority when he takes office on Jan 20.

At age 78, he is in the high-risk group for the highly contagious respiratory disease.
