Biden also recently said that after taking office, one of the options his Covid-19 response team will choose to promote the Covid-19 vaccination campaign is to deploy the National Guard.

Currently, most states in the US do not use the guards in the immunization campaign.

Biden has repeatedly declared that the top priority after taking office is to tackle the pandemic.

The United States started its vaccination campaign on December 14 and to date more than 9 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been used in the US, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

America is the world's largest epidemic zone with more than 23.1 million cases, of which more than 385,000 deaths.
