WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some of the nation’s top healthcare officials received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine alongside doctors and nurses at the National Institutes of Health in a public bid to drum up public support for inoculations.

“Bring it on,” NIH Director Francis Collins said at the event as he received his shot. U.S. Health Secretary and Alex Azar and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease at NIH, also received their first dose of the novel coronavirus vaccine.
