NEW YORK (AP) — First lady Jill Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci toured a COVID-19 vaccination site at a historic Harlem church.

Biden, Fauci and U.S. Sen Kirsten Gillibrand watched as people got their shots on Sunday in the basement of the Abyssinian Baptist Church.

Biden asked a teenager about to get his shot how old he was, and when he said he was 14, she responded, “You’re 14, that’s exactly what we want!"

The Abyssinian Baptist Church has often hosted elected officials and other dignitaries. Former President Bill Clinton and former Sen. Hillary Clinton attended a memorial service for actor Cicely Tyson there in February.
