According to data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this Sunday
According to data released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday, at least half of all people over the age of 18 in the United States have received the coronavirus vaccine.
Starting this Monday, everyone in the United States 16 years and older is eligible to receive the vaccine.
The CDC reports that 129,988,985 (50.4%) of people 18 years of age and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also reported that a total dose of 209,406,814 doses had been administered.
Since last Saturday, the reported dose has increased by about 3.5 million doses, an average of about 3.2 million doses per day for 7 days.
Approximately 39.5% of the total US population (131 million people) received at least one dose of vaccine, and 25.4% of the universal vaccine (approximately 84 million people).
The data released by the CDC may be delayed, and the dose may not be given on the date of the report.
Another thing to note is that although the time stamp on the CDC page is April 17 (Saturday), CNN has confirmed that the data was updated on April 18 (Sunday).
