The Biden administration has met its goal of bringing the number of doses administered to 100 million in its first 100 days
About one in six American adults are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to new data released by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Saturday.
According to the CDC, 16.7 percent of adults are fully vaccinated. And among those over 65, the vaccination rate exceeds 40 percent.
A total of more than 121 million doses of vaccines have been administered, bringing the full vaccination rate to about 43 million people.
Federal authorities have approved the use of vaccines developed by three companies: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. The first two require two doses; the third requires only one dose.
Joe Biden’s administration has already achieved its goal of bringing the number of doses administered to 100 million in its first 100 days. Despite this, health experts are urging people to continue to wear masks and keep a social distance to prevent further spread of the virus.
