Many political figures have been stepping up to get their COVID-19 vaccine ever since the country approved them, and even Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip received theirs on Saturday inside their home. 

While some really believe in the good the vaccine could bring, some have been skeptical about it, as well as the virus, and they’ve let America know their opinion on it. 

To prove to the American people that the vaccine could be a step in the right direction, many of those skeptics, as well as believers from the beginning, have put their pride behind and received the shot. 

Here’s a list of 10 political and public figures that got the jab so far:

The Queen and Prince received their shot inside Windsor Castle from an in-house doctor, BBC reported. It’s unsure which shot they received.
