Biden confirms that he will get a booster of the vaccine against COVID-19

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, has confirmed that both he and the first lady, Jill, will receive a third dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, claiming that the North American country has the right to bet on this booster because it is a donor key drugs at the international level.

The US Administration has updated its protocols this week after assuming that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, the mainstays of immunization in the United States, lose efficacy over time, in a context marked by the expansion of new variants such as delta.

The United States accumulates more than 37.1 million cases of COVID-19 – more than any other country – and more than 624,000 deaths. According to Johns Hopkins University, in the last two days it has added more than a thousand fatalities per day.

Biden, who from the first moment wanted to distance himself from his predecessor, Donald Trump, in relation to the pandemic, received the second dose of the vaccine on January 11. Now, he considers that “enough time has passed” to have a third dose, as he has explained in an interview with the television network ABC News.

The new recommendations advocate this reinforcement once eight months have passed since the second injection and prioritizing health workers, users of nursing homes and the elderly. Biden is 78 years old, so he could fall into this category, although the White House does not plan to start the new phase until the week of September 20.

INTERNATIONAL SCENARIO
The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for an international moratorium so that no countries advance with third doses while others have barely managed to immunize their population with first or second injections. However, Biden has said he is comfortable with the American position.

“Without a doubt, because we have donated more (vaccines) to the rest of the world than the rest of the world combined,” he argued, anticipating that the United States expects to reach 500,000 million doses delivered before mid-2022. “We are doing our part. “, has added.
