Biden gets booster shotPresident Joe Biden received his COVID-19 vaccine booster shot on live TV Monday afternoon, days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention endorsed booster shots for millions of Americans who received their second shot of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago.

"Boosters are important, but the important thing we need to do is get more people vaccinated," Biden said, noting about 23% of Americans haven't received a first shot.

"That distinct minority is causing an awful lot of damage for the rest of the country," Biden said. "One thing's for certain: A quarter of the country can't go unvaccinated and us not continue to have a problem."

People 65 years and older, residents in long-term care settings and people 50–64 with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot, the CDC said Thursday. People 18–49 with underlying medical conditions and people 18-64 years who are at increased risk for exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster, the CDC said.
