Harris spoke at the Giant Food grocery store about the side effects she experienced after receiving the second dose of her Moderna vaccine and reassured a woman as she received her own second dose.
“The first day that I got the shot, I felt fine. The next day, I realized, I needed to take it a little slow. And the next day it was like nothing ever happened, but I knew I was vaccinated,” the vice president told the woman before she received the second dose of her Moderna vaccine. Harris added she experienced no side effects with the first shot.
Harris, who is the first female, first African American and first Asian American vice president, has made an effort to raise awareness about the coronavirus vaccine in communities of color in particular in order to allay vaccine hesitancy, assure individuals the vaccines are safe and ensure that enough of the public receives them.
Harris, then vice president-elect, received the first dose of her Moderna vaccine publicly in December at United Medical Center in Southeast D.C. The center serves residents of Wards 7 and 8, which represent the largest population of African American residents of the District. Harris received her second dose publicly a few weeks later as vice president at the National Institutes of Health.
