Her first dose of Moderna vaccine was received weeks before she took office. A second dose was taken just days later, on Inauguration Day 2021.

The booster shot was given in October, and the booster shot again on April 1.

Public health officials say that infections have increased in certain parts of the US because of the Omicron variant. However, overall cases are declining.
