Now, pharmaceutical organizations from all around the world have been working tirelessly to discover a vaccine for months…
But, to begin with, they didn’t have much luck.
American multinational pharmaceutical corporation, Pfizer and German biotechnology company, BioNTech have been working on a coronavirus vaccine for the last few months, and now, it’s finally ready.
Which has enrolled 44,000 people in the U.S and in 5 other countries.
Well, they were looking that good that some countries have started distributing the COVID vaccine out to their citizens a few weeks ago.
And countries such as the United Kingdom have wasted absolutely no time in administering the vaccine, with the first of 800,000 doses having been given at the start of last week.
There are many people who still don’t trust the vaccine.
And, when it was reported that some recipients had experienced an allergic reaction to the vaccine, the conspiracy theories began flooding in.
With the words “zombies”, “infertility,” and “microchips” cropping up way too often.
A whole host of politicians have vowed to have the vaccine administered live on TV.
A number of the top names in congress and the White House have promised to receive the vaccine in front of an audience in an attempt to debunk any fears.
In an attempt to bolster trust and confidence in the shots among Americans.
Vice President Mike Pence.
Along with his wife, Karen, and U.S. surgeon general Jerome Adams, he was inoculated with the first dose of the 2-shot vaccine at 8 a.m. in the Eisenhower Executive Office building in Washington, DC.
Where over eight-thousand people tuned in to watch.
“I didn’t feel a thing,” Pence said once the injection had been administered, adding that the vaccine was “safe and effective.”
Let’s hope the rest of America can receive the vaccine very soon.
