The 78-year-old will be among the first non-healthcare worker Americans to receive the miracle Pfizer vaccine which was rolled out on Sunday as the nation undertakes the biggest vaccination effort in US history, CNN reported.

The octogenarian’s campaign was incredibly cautious during the pandemic, keeping Biden sequestered in his Delaware basement for months on end, and only allowed select advisors to enter his home.

Since winning the election, Biden continues to keep a light travel schedule, speaks infrequently to the press, and is always seen wearing a mask in public unless he is delivering a speech.

The Pfizer vaccine, of which the Trump administration initially ordered 100 million doses, requires two shots, meaning 50 million Americans most at risk, including frontline workers and the elderly in aged care facilities, will be first in line.

President Trump is also in a high risk group at age 74 but has already had the virus, meaning he could still have immunity.

At a White House briefing on Tuesday, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president wanted to take the vaccine but was still enjoying the protective benefits of his recent treatment, which included an experimental “antibody cocktail.”

“He will receive the vaccine as soon as his medical team determines is best but his priority is frontline workers and those in long-term care facilities and he wants to make sure that vulnerable gets access first,” McEnany said.
