The seven-day average of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered has slowed to about 1.1 million doses per day, according to data published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This is less than a third of the peak pace of about 3.3 million doses per day in mid-April. But over the past week, an average of more than 615,000 people became fully vaccinated each day and an average of nearly 523,000 additional people got a first shot each day.
Overall, more than 136 million people – about 41% of the US population – is fully vaccinated, and nearly 169 million people – about 51% of the population – has received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine, according to CDC data.
About 509,000 more doses were reported administered since Tuesday, for a total of nearly 297 million doses administered since vaccinations began. That’s about 81% of the nearly 367 million total doses delivered.
Note: Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been administered on the day reported.
