WASHINGTON: US President Joe Biden received a dose of the updated Covid-19 vaccine, as well as the annual flu vaccine, his doctor said Saturday. The president’s personal physician, Kevin O´Connor, said the US leader hoped others would follow his lead.

US officials last week authorized an updated version of the anti-Covid 19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, better adapted to the variants of the virus currently in circulation. They also now recommend that all Americans aged 60 and older receive a vaccine against RSV, the Respiratory Syncytial Virus.
