Tracking COVID-19 vaccine distribution by state: How many people have been vaccinated in the U.S.?
About 13.3% of the population in the U.S. have received at least one COVID-19 shot. About 5.9% of people have been given both shots of the vaccine.
About 14.7% of the shots distributed are not being used yet.
As the COVID-19 pandemic ravages the U.S., vaccines have begun to be distributed across the country and within its territories. Two vaccines, one made by Pfizer-BioNTech and the other by Moderna, have been authorized for emergency use and are part of the overall distribution process. The first shots were given by Dec. 14.
Each of the vaccines requires two doses. A second shot should be administered about three or four weeks after the first, depending on which vaccine was given.
More than 25 million in the U.S. have been sick with COVID-19 since January 2020, and more than 400,000 have died from the virus. More coronavirus cases have been recorded this winter than at any previous period of the pandemic. Despite this, many states are struggling to administer vaccines at the same rate the vaccines are delivered.
Data as of Feb. 22
Last checked for updates Feb. 23 at 3 a.m.
Distributed doses for U.S. states, D.C., and Puerto Rico represent the number of doses delivered. Distributed doses for other territories and associated island states represent the number of doses shipped.
How quickly states are administering their vaccines
Because of a lag in reporting, the share of vaccines that have been given may be larger than it seems. However, the process has gone more slowly than officials initially hoped.
President Joe Biden has said he hoped to get 100 million shots administered within his first 100 days in office. Between Dec. 14, when vaccinations started, and Jan. 20, when Biden took office, about 16.5 million shots were administered.
