(JustPatriots.com)- President Biden received his second COVID-19 booster shot by a White House Medical Unit member on Wednesday.
As usual, Biden used it as a source of encouragement, doing it on camera in hopes it would inspire those who haven’t gotten any Covid shots.
The president pushed Congress to approve more COVID-19 financing, claiming that the government would run out of money to purchase vaccine doses, diagnostics, and other supplies if the funds were not approved.
“Let’s get this done,” he said.
On Tuesday, the US Food and Drug Administration authorized a second booster dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for elderly individuals and immunocompromised patients.
As he took the shot, he declined to answer shouted questions from reporters about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s monthlong war in Ukraine.
“I’m feeling great,” Biden said, seemingly unaware of the reporter’s queries, as he received a booster for the Pfizer vaccine.
“Didn’t hurt a bit,” he deflected.
Biden also announced the creation of COVID.gov, a “one-stop-shop” for information on coronavirus testing, vaccinations, and therapies.
In September, the president received his first Pfizer booster dose. Shortly before his inauguration in January 2021, he took his first two vaccination doses.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 65 percent of the U.S. population is deemed fully vaccinated, meaning they have gotten at least two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna coronavirus vaccines or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson shot.
According to CDC data, only 45 percent of Americans have received a booster dose.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the United States has had more than 80 million confirmed coronavirus infections since the outbreak began, significantly more than any other country. COVID-19-related problems have claimed the lives of about 978,000 Americans.

“Because of testing, treatments, and more, we’re now in a new moment in this pandemic,” Biden said. “It does not mean Covid-19 is over. It means Covid-19 no longer controls our lives.”
Are we sure about that?
