10% of US Population Now Vaccinated

3 min read

In the first 19 days since Joe Biden took office about 26.7 million Covid-19 vaccinations have taken place. Altogether, more than 32.9 million Americans had received at least one shot of vaccine as of yesterday, that is 9.9% of the total population and 12.5% of those old enough to be eligible.

Between December 11 when the first vaccine was approved  by the FDA and January 20, only 16.5 million doses were administered.

Alaska has led the way among the states with 15% of its total population vaccinated. Kansas and Missouri are showing the lowest rate at 8%. Reportedly, 3% of all Americans have received both shots of either the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines.

It is understandable that those who have not been vaccinated and can not book an appointment are frustrated. Both Pfizer and Moderna will have to speed up production to meet their goals of producing 100 million doses each by the end of March. Those 200 million shots will be enough to vaccinate about 37% of American adults. More vaccines and doses are on the way.

Pfizer announced it will supply 200 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine for the U.S. by the end of May and is aiming to ship 2 billion doses globally this year. The vaccine is over 90% effective according to clinical trials conducted in 2020, but more testing needs to be done to see how well it protects against the new variants. Dr. Phil Dormitzer, who helped develop the vaccine as vice president and chief scientific officer of viral vaccines at Pfizer, joins CBSN to discuss.

If the (Johnson and Johnson) vaccine is approved, it will become the third Covid-19 vaccine available in the United States. The New York Times report that Johnson & Johnson expects to have about seven million doses ready for distribution by March, and about 30 million by early April.
