The number of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered jumped by a record 3.38 million Friday, according to White House Covid-19 Data Director Dr. Cyrus Shahpar.
“Just in, a new daily record!” Shahpar tweeted Friday, adding that the seven-day average is now up to 2.62 million shots per day.
This is the fourth time the number of doses administered has jumped more than 3 million on consecutive days.
The previous one-day record was just over 3.2 million doses, on March 13.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has not yet updated its tracker with the total doses administered; that is expected this afternoon.
Note: Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been given on the day reported.
Correction: An earlier version of this post misstated the number of times the total doses administered has jumped more than 3 million. This is the fourth time that has happened.
