Vice President-elect Kamala Harris received the first dose of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday morning, following President-elect Joe Biden and officials in the Trump administration. Harris encouraged Americans to trust the vaccine, saying that the development is “about saving lives,” and that she “trusts the scientists.”

Just 3 months ago, during the general election, the vice president-elect undermined public confidence in vaccine development, via Operation Warp Speed, and said that she would not trust a vaccination developed under the supervision of the Trump administration.

“I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump. And it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he's talking about. I will not take his word for it," Harris said in September.

Harris did not offer credit to Operation Warp Speed and the Trump administration for the remarkable vaccine development and distribution efforts, as President-elect Biden did.
