The United States has administered 382,294,795 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Wednesday morning and distributed 461,117,525 doses, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

These figures surpass the 381,453,265 vaccination doses that the CDC reported had been administered by September 14th, out of the 458,771,465 total doses.

According to the agency, 210,361,099 individuals had already received at least one vaccine dose, while 179,695,287 were fully vaccinated by 6:00 AM. ET on Wednesday.

The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna (NASDAQ:) and Pfizer/BioNTech, as well as Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:)’s one-shot vaccine.

Over 1.9 million people received an additional dose of either Pfizer (NYSE:) or Moderna’s vaccine since Aug. 13, when the U.S. authorized a third dose of the vaccines for people with compromised immune systems who are likely to have weaker protection from the two-dose regimens.
