Biden, 78-year-old, got the coronavirus vaccine, during a televised event in his home state of Delaware. SOUNDBITE: JOE BIDEN, U.S. President-elect "What I want to say is we owe these folks an awful lot. The scientists and the people who put this together, the front line workers, the people who were the ones who actually did the clinical work, it's just amazing. I wish we had time to take you through the whole hospital to see how busy and incredible you all are." Biden is considered in the high-risk age category for COVID-19. He got inoculated after top U.S. infectious-disease expert Anthony Fauci strongly recommended that he do so. The vaccine requires a second dose weeks apart.
