The White House said neither US President Joe Biden nor first lady Jill Biden were considered a close contact of Harris due to their respective recent travel schedules.

She received her first dose of the Moderna vaccine weeks before taking office and a second dose just days after inauguration Day in 2021.

She then received a booster shot in late October and an additional booster on April 1.

Infections have risen in some parts of the US due to the highly transmissible Omicron variant, even as cases are falling overall, according to public health officials.

Administration officials have said recently that Joe Biden's regular contact with advisers and supporters could expose him to the virus.
