The US has reported more than a million new Covid-19 shots in a day, according to data published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thursday.
This is an increase from the 16.5 million administered doses reported Wednesday, marking the second time a reported single-day increase has surpassed one million.
More than 17.5 million Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the US, of the 38 million that have been distributed, according to data published by the CDC.
The last time this happened was Friday when 1.1 million new doses were reported. Over the past seven days, an average of 914,000 doses have been administered per day.
About 2.4 million people have received both doses, according to the CDC.
