(FiveNation.com)- We hear plenty about the health of President Joe Biden, given his advancing age and clear cognitive decline, but this week we learned more about Vice President Kamala Harris and the severe side effects she says she experienced after taking the vaccine before she took office.
That’s the same vaccine that President Biden claimed didn’t exist before he arrived in the White House, by the way.
Vice President Harris appeared at a Giant supermarket in Washington, D.C., discussing how pharmacies at supermarkets all over the country were being used as part of the national vaccine distribution program.
Harris talked about her experience taking the vaccine, saying, “The first dose, I was fine.”
“The second dose I thought I was fine, got up early in the morning, went to work, and then midday, I realized, yeah, I might need to slow down a bit,” she said. “Just that one day, and then it was fine.”
While it’s by no means an indication that the vaccine is dangerous, it is an interesting story to hear many weeks after Harris received it.
Harris promoted the Biden Administration’s Federal retail Pharmacy Program, an expansion on plans put in place by the Trump Administration after former President Donald Trump facilitated the most rapid development of a vaccine for a novel virus in world history.

The vice president met members of the public at the event, discussing how easy it is to get the vaccine.
Earlier this month, the Daily Mail reportedly reached out to the White House to find out if Biden experienced any side effects of the vaccine, but they did not receive a response.
Harris received her first dose of the Moderna vaccine before the inauguration, and her second on January 26th, after entering the White House.
Side effects of the vaccine are known to include chills, fatigue, headaches, and fevers, though these symptoms are generally more common among those receiving the second dose.
