Biden to take booster shot 'on camera' - Psaki

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki shared on Monday the United States President Joe Biden will take a Pfizer booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine "and he will do so on camera".

Earlier, the US Food and Drug Administration voted to reject authorizing the Pfizer booster shot for the general public due to insufficient data but agreed to allow administering the jab to people aged 65 and above. President Biden falls into the eligible group being 78 years old.

"We view the news on Friday as an important step forward in protecting more people, saving more lives," Psaki said.
