His live vaccination is part of an effort to promote its safety and boost public confidence in its effectiveness.

Wife Karen Pence and Surgeon General Jerome Adams also received the vaccination in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building near the the White House by a medical team from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“I didn’t feel a thing. Well done,” Pence said.

Karen and I wanted to step forward and take this vaccine to assure the American people that while we cut red tape, we cut no corners. Thanks to the great work at the National Institute of Health, and the great and careful work of the FDA and the leadership of our president and Operation Warp Speed, the American people can be confident we have one, and perhaps within hours, two safe and effective coronavirus vaccines for you and for your family.”

All three people must return in 21 days for the second dose of the vaccine.
