Politics

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — President-elect Joe Biden delivered remarks on Tuesday afternoon, from Wilmington, Delaware to discuss what needs to happen to change the direction of the pandemic.

Biden received his first injected dose of the Pfizer vaccine live on television last week. Both vaccines require two doses for full protection.

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris received Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine earlier Tuesday. Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff were vaccinated at United Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

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 335,000, his top priority.
