The Hill reports:
Vice President Pence “wouldn’t hesitate” to get a COVID-19 vaccine once it’s FDA approved and said the administration will be urging Americans to get flu shots as public health experts warn of the potential dangers of flu season coinciding with the coronavirus pandemic.
Pence told The Hill in an exclusive interview that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are working to develop a comprehensive plan for the distribution of a vaccine, with seniors, first responders, health care workers and those with immunodeficiencies likely to be prioritized.
“So we’ll deploy the resources, but the very moment that it’s appropriate for somebody in my category to get a vaccine, you better believe it. I, and my family, wouldn’t hesitate,” Pence said of taking a vaccine.
