President Joe Biden received his second booster shot of the coronavirus vaccine Wednesday afternoon.
- “It didn’t hurt a bit,” he said.
Driving the news: Biden received his next dose as his administration announced COVID.gov, a website dedicated to COVID-19 resources.
- The new website is a one-stop-shop to help people “access COVID-19 tests, vaccines and treatments, along with status updates on infection rates where they live,” per The Associated Press.

What they said: “Now, with a click of a button, people will be able to find where to access all of these tools,” the White House said, per AP.
Flashback: Biden received his second booster shot of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine one day after the Food and Drug Administration authorized them on Tuesday.
- The FDA authorized the vaccine for those over 50, allowing them to receive a second booster — or a fourth total shot — of the Pfizer-BioNTech or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
- “This action will now make a second booster dose of these vaccines available to other populations at higher risk for severe disease, hospitalization and death,” the FDA said.
One note to go: Biden received his second booster shot and then answered a number of questions from reporters, including queries about the Ukraine war and intelligence on Russia.
