More than 202 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine has been administered in the United States, according to data published Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
About 185 million of those doses have been reported administered since President Biden took office, to reach 200 million doses administered under his administration by his 100th day in office. To achieve that goal, the total doses administered would be about 218 million doses since vaccinations began.
The CDC reported that 202,282,923 total doses had been administered, about 78% of the 258,502,815 doses delivered.
That’s nearly 4 million more doses reported administered since yesterday, for a seven-day average of about 3.3 million doses per day.
Overall, about 38.5% of the US population – nearly 128 million people – has received at least one dose of vaccine. About 24% of the US population – almost 81 million people — is fully vaccinated, CDC data shows.
Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not be given on the day reported.
