President Joe Biden took selfies Tuesday with toddlers getting their first covid shot and comforted a crying boy named Joseph as he and Jill visited a vaccine center in Washington DC

The first couple’s visit came because nearly all Americans can now get vaccinated after the FDA and CDC approve injections for those six months and more.

“We are the only country in the world currently doing this,” Biden said.

He also mentioned that his youngest grandson, Beau, who is two years old, recently became eligible for vaccination.

“Everyone knows I love children more than people,” he said.

The president handed out hugs while surrounded by toddlers. He carried a few around as he and the first lady chatted with both parents and children. A little boy kept pulling on the president’s face mask as Biden dragged him across the room.

The president also posed for selfies with parents and children.

‘Got it,’ he asked a mother after a photo was taken.

And he comforted another little boy who was crying in his mother’s arms after his shot.

“Joseph — that’s my name too,” the president told the boy, adding that “Joey” was a great nickname for them.

The Bidens visited the COVID center at the Church of the Holy Communion in Washington DC as the US has begun distributing COVID vaccines for children as young as six months across the country.

The scene was quite chaotic with kids running around, some crying, waiting to get the first shot in their arms. Both parents and toddlers mingled with the Bidens.

The first couple handed out giant blue vaccine stickers, some of which were almost too big for the kids to wear. DC Mayor Muriel Bowser accompanied them for the visit.

“The United States is now the first country in the world to offer safe and effective COVID 19 vaccines for children as young as six months old,” Biden said later in the White House.

He joked that he had so much fun at the clinic that he didn’t want to abandon the kids.

Federal agencies late last week approved Moderna’s two-dose vaccine for children aged six months to five years and the Pfizer-BioNTech three-shot schedule for children aged six months to four years.

It is unclear how many parents across the country will have their children vaccinated.

Polls for the Kaiser Family Foundation showed that only about one in five parents of children under five (18 percent) would like to have their child vaccinated right away, while a higher proportion (38 percent) say they plan to have their child vaccinated for a while. waiting to see how the vaccine works for others.

About four in ten parents of children under the age of five are more reluctant to have their child vaccinated: 27 percent say they will “absolutely not” have their child vaccinated and 11 percent say they will only do so when necessary.

There was also limited demand for the photos the last time the FDA considered them for a younger age group, children ages five to 11.

According to official CDC data, only 30 percent of Americans in the age group are fully vaccinated, half of the 60 percent between the ages of 12 and 17. Minors generally have low vaccination coverage, with the youngest adults having about 80 percent vaccine use.
