The Biden administration officially hit 100 million Covid-19 vaccine doses administered Friday under their watch, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Jeff Zients announced.
“I want to start with the important announcement the President made yesterday —we reached our 100 million shots goal in just 58 days, weeks ahead of schedule,” Zients announced Friday during a virtual briefing from the Ryan Health Center in New York. “Achieving this goal is a direct result of deliberate aggressive actions guided by the President's whole of government national strategy to end the pandemic. Now, thanks to the American Rescue Plan, we will have the resources to fully implement the strategy and put the pandemic behind us.”
According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 115,730,008 total vaccine doses have been administered to date — 75,495,716 Americans have received at least one dose, while 40,981,464 have been fully vaccinated.
