Nearly 53 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been administered in the United States, according to data published today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC reported that 52,884,356 total doses have been administered – about 72% of the 70,057,800 doses distributed.
That’s about two million more administered doses reported since yesterday, for a 7-day average of about 1.6 million doses per day.
Just over 38 million people have now received at least one dose of the vaccine, and about 14 million people have been fully vaccinated, CDC data shows.
