According to Agence France Presse, on the morning of the 18th local time, US Vice President burns received the new crown vaccine through live television.
Jerome Adams, the director of the U.S. Department of health, was vaccinated at the same public event.
After burns was vaccinated, 'I didn't feel it at all. There's no doubt that it's a medical miracle! '
Fudge has previously said that he will also be vaccinated in public places to encourage more people to get vaccinated, because public opinion surveys show that a large proportion of Americans are hesitant to get vaccinated.
According to a survey released by the associated press last week, only about half of Americans say they want an injection, a quarter say they're not sure they can get one, and a quarter say they won't.
Fudge said he was waiting for the vaccine to be assigned to him by the National Institutes of health before it was publicly injected. He said the relevant federal agencies have not received the vaccine from the pharmaceutical manufacturers, but it is expected to arrive next week.
Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Pfizer's new crown vaccine for people aged 16 and older. The promotion of the vaccine in the United States will begin next Monday. Hospitals across the country marked the first batch of vaccinations at a ceremony.
The FDA also expects to approve Moderna's new crown vaccine this week, which will increase vaccine supply across the United States. Fudge said Friday it was a 'bittersweet' moment.
He said: 'it's a very positive thing for us to sit here and talk about vaccines, but all of this is bittersweet, because we are going through very, very difficult times as we move towards the final solution. '
At the same time as the vaccine is launched in the United States, shocking new cases, hospitalizations and deaths are being reported every day. More than 233200 new crown cases and more than 3200 deaths were reported in the United States on Thursday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
According to the analysis of data from Hopkins University by CNBC, more than 2600 people in the United States die from the new coronavirus every day in the last seven days, an increase of about 16% over a week ago.
