President Biden on Wednesday received his second COVID-19 booster shot after he delivered remarks on the country's fight against the virus.

The big picture: Biden's booster comes one day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expanded eligibility for a second booster shot for Americans age 50 or older in addition to some with compromised immune systems.

State of play: Biden on Wednesday also unveiled COVID.gov., a website designed to be a "one-stop shop" for COVID resources, including vaccines, tests and masks.

  • Biden, who received a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster last September on live television, received a Pfizer booster on Wednesday, per the White House.
  • "It didn't hurt a bit," Biden said afterward.
