Half of all people 18 and older in the US have received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine, according to data published Sunday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As of Monday, all people in the US, 16 years and older, will be eligible for the vaccine.
The CDC reported that 129,988,985 – 50.4% – of people age 18 and over have received at least one dose of vaccine.
The CDC also reported that 209,406,814 total doses have been administered, about 79% of the 264,505,725 doses delivered.
That’s about 3.5 million more administered doses reported since Saturday, for a 7-day average of about 3.2 million doses per day.
About 39.5% of the total US population – 131 million people – have received at least one dose of vaccine, and 25.4% of the population – about 84 million people – have been fully vaccinated.
Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been given on the day reported.
An additional note that while the timestamp on the CDC page says Saturday, April 17, CNN has confirmed the data has been updated as of Sunday, April 18.
