Joe Biden will receive the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine on Monday, according to the President-elect's transition team.

(CNN)Joe Biden will receive the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine on Monday, according to the President-elect's transition team.

The President-elect's vaccination will come the week before he is sworn in as the next president of the United States, and as the coronavirus pandemic continues to devastate the nation.

Biden received the first dose of the vaccine last month live on national television as part of an effort by his incoming administration to reassure the country of the vaccine's safety.

The President-elect expressed his confidence in the vaccine and encouraged Americans to receive one as soon as it becomes available to them.

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris received the first dose of the Moderna vaccine on camera the week after Biden received his shot in December.

Incoming first lady Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff, Harris' husband, have also both received the first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, respectively.

The President-elect will aim to release nearly every available dose of the coronavirus vaccine when he takes office, CNN reported last week, which is a break with the Trump administration's strategy of holding back half of US vaccine production to ensure second doses are available.

Vice President Mike Pence was administered the first dose of the vaccine at an on-camera event the week prior to Biden.

President Donald Trump has not yet received the vaccine and won't be administered one until it is recommended by the White House medical team, a White House official previously told CNN.
