US President Joe Biden gets COVID-19 vaccine booster shot

US President Joe Biden received his COVID-19 vaccine booster shot at the White House on Monday afternoon (local time).

Biden got a third Pfizer dose after booster doses were approved by federal health officials. “We know that to beat this pandemic and to save lives, to keep our children safe, our schools open, our economy going, we need to get folks vaccinated,” Biden said during remarks ahead of his shot. “So, please, please do the right thing. Please get these shots. It can save your life and it can save the lives of those around you,” he said.

Biden received his first two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine ahead of his inauguration in January. Biden joked about how he is “way over” the age of 65, which is part of the reason he is eligible for the shot.

He said he didn’t have any side effects after getting his first or second COVID-19 vaccine shots.

“If you fall under these categories, you’re eligible for the booster. Now, I know it doesn’t look like it, but I am over 65 — I wish I — way over. And that’s why I’m getting my booster shot today,” the White House said in a statement.

“Boosters are important, but the most important thing we need to do is get more people vaccinated,” Biden said.

“The vast majority of Americans are doing the right thing. Over 77 per cent of adults have gotten at least one shot. About 23 per cent haven’t gotten any shots, and that — that distinct minority is causing an awful lot of us an awful lot of damage for the rest of the country,” he said.”This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. That’s why I’m moving forward with vaccination requirements wherever I can,” he added.

The US Food and Drug Administration last week gave emergency use authorisation for a booster dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in people 65 and older, people at high risk of severe disease and people whose jobs put them at risk of infection.

In a tweet, while urging everyone not to share fake information about her, Jamwal said she didn’t expose anyone and was countering those supporting the traitors.

“When the traitors who were celebrating Pakistan win got exposed. I countered those supporting traitors; after that, they all started harassing me by different means. I only countered them. I didn’t expose, anybody and I am not any police informer. They got exposed.” She added, “A humble request please not to share wrong information.” the tweet read

Umar Wani, the spokesperson of Jammu Kashmir United Liberation Front, an Islamist group, has written a letter saying that actions will be taken against people who have raised voices against people celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India.

Reasi Police has arrested two brothers accused of kidnapping and rape after 19 years. Both have been identified as Abdul Rashid and Makhna son Mian Kharian, resident of Barnaili Thillu Tehsil Mahor Reasi. In 2002, Mahor police had registered a case of kidnapping and rape against both the accused. He kidnapped the woman and kept her with him, and raped her every day.

Reasi police said that both the accused fled away as soon as the case was registered in the police station. Both of them changed their disguise and were living from one place to another. This is the reason why it was difficult to arrest them. Meanwhile, after the investigation proved the case, a charge sheet was presented against them in the court in 2003. The court, on 10/09/2004, issued an order of arrest against both the accused.

The Reasi police team led by SSP Reasi Shailendra Singh made an elaborate plan and laid a trap to arrest the absconding accused. The police succeeded in their strategy, and both hardcore and long-running criminals were arrested. Police officials said that evidence had been collected against both the accused, and soon both will be produced before the court.

SSP Shailendra Singh took over the command of Reasi District Police, the police have arrested more than 100 absconding criminals in the last six months under the scheme of “Arrest of the Ferrari”. This is a record in itself. At the same time, the local people have also appreciated the functioning of the police department under the leadership of SSP Shailendra Singh for pushing the hardcore criminals of the district behind bars in such a short time.
