U.S. administers nearly 392 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines
(Reuters) – The United States has administered 391,992,662 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Wednesday morning and distributed 473,954,085 doses, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
These figures surpass the 391,152.574 doses of vaccine the CDC stated had reached arm’s by Tuesday, when 472,646,105 doses were delivered.
According to the agency, 214,043,376 individuals had already received at least one vaccine dose, while 185,000,000,537,265 were fully vaccinated by 6:00 AM. ET Wednesday.
The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna (NASDAQ:) and Pfizer/BioNTech, as well as Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:)’s one-shot vaccine.
About 3.68 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.
