More than 56 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been administered in the United States, according to data published Tuesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC reported that 56,281,827 total doses have been administered — about 72% of the 72,423,125 doses distributed.
That’s more than 1 million more administered doses reported since Tuesday, for a seven-day average of about 1.6 million doses per day.
More than 40 million people have now received at least one dose of the vaccine and more than 15 million people have been fully vaccinated, CDC data shows.
Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been given on the day reported.
