Nearly 100 million vaccinations have been administered in the United States since the new U.S. administration took office almost two months ago. That mark will be surpassed as early as today, U.S. President Joe Biden said yesterday at the White House. “That puts us weeks ahead of schedule,” Biden said.

Biden had promised at his swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20 that there should be at least 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days in office. By the end of May, there should be enough vaccine for all of the roughly 260 million adults in the country. Starting in May, all citizens 16 and older in the country should be able to be vaccinated; currently, priority is still given mostly to high-risk groups.

116 million vaccinations to date
Since the vaccination campaign began in mid-December, nearly 116 million doses of coronavirus vaccine have been administered in the U.S., a country with a population of 330 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A good 75 million people received at least one dose, according to the report, and about 41 million are already considered fully vaccinated.

In the USA, in addition to the vaccines from Moderna and Biontech and Pfizer, for which two doses are injected, the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson is also used, which develops its full effect after just one dose. The vaccine from the manufacturer AstraZeneca has not yet been approved in the USA.
