Mr. Biden and Mrs. Biden will receive the vaccine in public in DE, incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Friday.
"Karen and I are more than happy to step forward before this week was out to take this safe and effective coronavirus vaccine that we have secured and produced for the American people", the vice president emphasized.
"I'm sure all Americans are excited to see me, the guy who let Covid spread everywhere, get one of the first vaccines", said Pence, played by Beck Bennett.
The vice president said during his remarks that "hope is on the way" and marveled that while regular vaccine developments take between eight and 12 years, the US was about to have two coronavirus vaccines and 'millions of doses in less than one year'.

Notably, it arrives just a few weeks before the Democratic President Elect Joe Biden takes the office, on January 20. But while the White House rattles SMIC's closely-knit integrations to the military, the case for DJI is less clear.
"Before we begin", he continued, "I just want to reassure the American people that this vaccine is completely safe and harmless".
Of the vaccine, the vice president said, "Hope is on the way". White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday declined to set a timeline, or to commit to him getting it while still in office.
U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will receive a public vaccination next week. As the world watched Britons get the coronavirus vaccine last week, Operation Warp Speed officials appeared bewildered about whether a similar public rollout was planned for the US.
Three former presidents - Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush - have said they too will be getting vaccinated and offered to do it on TV. He is the most senior United States official to be vaccinated so far.
Aside from Pence, a number of other prominent USA political figures have pledged to take the vaccine publicly and said they would do so on TV. White House officials have described it as a hard position: They are torn between wanting to instill public confidence in the vaccine by taking it and not wanting to be seen as jumping the line, given the limited supply.
