In real-time, the coronavirus vaccine is being shipped out and transported across the nation.
Operation Warp Speed, coupled with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s approval for emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine is responsible for the ongoing access to the shot.
Right now, the federal government very much wants Americans to feel confident in the COVID-19 vaccine; they also want as many people as possible to be vaccinated for the virus as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
This is why Vice President Mike Pence will be vaccinated for COVID-19 on camera, as will his wife, Second Lady Karen Pence, according to Townhall.
Everything You Need to Know
The Pences will receive the coronavirus vaccine on television tomorrow. According to the statement from the White House, the public acceptance of this vaccine is designed to engender the public’s trust and confidence in it.
Amid news of the coronavirus vaccine’s speedy production and distribution, some Americans have raised questions. Many people have concerns about the relatively short timeframe in which the vaccination was created; others furthermore indicated that they will first wait and see how others respond to it before getting the injection themselves.
The development and manufacturing of a vaccine typically takes 8-12 years but under Operation Warp Speed, we have done it in 8-12 months and we are on track to deliver MILLIONS of doses before the end of December! This is a Medical Miracle! pic.twitter.com/ZLRM76FFVt

Both the vice president and second lady will receive the vaccine on camera at the White House. Surgeon General Jerome Adams is also expected to be present at this time, where he, too, will be publicly vaccinated for COVID-19.
Will Other Americans Follow Suit?
Amid concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine, many leaders are being encouraged to publicly receive the vaccination and put these concerns to rest.
Whether or not Americans feel more comfortable with getting the vaccine after seeing the Pences receive it on TV remains to be determined. The vaccine is set to require two doses, however, with the second dose arriving three weeks after its predecessor.

Certain people have questioned the need for a vaccine, due to COVID-19’s survivability rate of 94.6% to 99.997%; age and health status also play significant roles in someone’s vulnerability to the virus, coupled with their capacity to fight it off.
Next week, Joe Biden is also expected to publicly take the coronavirus vaccine.
