Kamala Harris is the first woman, a person of color, and a person of South Asian descent to be vice president.  She made history during the short time she served as acting president.  When President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007 and followed the process set out in the Constitution. President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for a brief period of time.  The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time. President Joe Biden had his last full exam in December 2019. Doctors found him healthy, vigorous, and fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency. 

Biden is the oldest person to serve as president, and interest in his health has been high since he declared his candidacy for the White House in 2019.  Kevin O’Connor, who has been Biden’s primary care physician since 2009, wrote in a three-page note that the then-presidential candidate was in overall good shape.  Biden has had episodes of atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat that’s potentially serious but treatable. At the time, O’Connor cited a list of tests that showed Biden’s heart was functioning normally. His only needed care was a blood thinner to prevent the most worrisome risk, blood clots or stroke. Biden required surgery to repair two brain aneurysms, weak bulges in arteries, one of them leaking. Biden has never had a recurrence, his doctor said, citing a test in 2014 that examined his arteries.
