    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Second Lady Karen Pence received Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccination in public on Friday, becoming the first senior White House officials to undergo the procedure.

    "I didn't feel a thing. Well done, and I appreciate your service to the country", Pence told the team of nurses who administered the vaccine.

    The couple was joined by Surgeon General Jerome Adams, who was also vaccinated live on television. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania, both of whom have already contracted COVID-19, have not said when they will get immunised against the virus.
