3.5 million doses of coronavirus vaccines were administered in the United States on Saturday. White House adviser Andy Slavett said on Twitter. This immediately set the new record set on Friday – 3.4 million doses.
More than 3 million people were vaccinated Sunday for the third day in a row, according to the White House. More than 143 million doses of vaccines against COVID-19 have been administered so far across the United States, according to the CDC. More than 36 percent of adults received the first vaccine, and 20 percent were fully vaccinated. 328 million people live in the United States.
Americans are currently vaccinated with three vaccines: Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech, two doses of which should be given, and Johnson & Johnson, a single dose is sufficient.
US President Joe Biden promised before his inauguration on January 20 that at least 100 million vaccines would be given during the first 100 days of his presidency. This goal was reached a few days ago, less than 60 days into his term. So Biden doubled down on his original goal: After his first 100 days, a total of 200 million injections should now have been given.
