▲ President Biden hit a booster shot

U.S. President Biden has released an additional dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

President Biden gave a short speech at the White House on the 27th local time emphasizing vaccinations and booster shots, or booster shots, for those who were not vaccinated, and then administered the Pfizer vaccine while reporters watched.

President Biden strongly recommended that if six months have passed since the vaccination, a booster shot should be given, after the US health authorities introduced that the elderly 65 years of age or older, those with underlying medical conditions, medical workers and teachers were selected as subjects for the booster shot.

The 78-year-old President Biden is a senior citizen 65 years of age and older who are eligible for the booster shot.

President Biden gave the first and second doses in December of last year and January of this year.

He said his wife, Jill Biden, would also be vaccinated.

President Biden's public appearance of the booster dose four days after the US health authorities approved the booster dose seems to be a result of being aware of the situation in which the vaccination rate has stagnated.

Although the United States has enough vaccines in stock, the proportion of the population vaccinated at least once is the lowest among the G7 countries.
