As of April 3, 2021, 3:55 PM EST, the global vaccination count was 777 million. Vaccines have been administered in 154 countries and are averaging 18.10 million inoculations per day.
In the United States, 183,467,709 shots have been administered so far. Vaccinations began in the US on December 14 with healthcare workers being the first recipients. The US is averaging 3,291,984 inoculations per day. The number of vaccinations increased significantly in the past week as the US continues to ramp up the campaign.
So far 117 million Americans have received at least one dose. 70.7 million people have been fully inoculated.
- 35.3 percent of the population has received the first dose
- 21.3 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated
- 77.2 percent of shots delivered have been administered.
- California is the leading US state with almost 22 million doses administered.
At this rate, it would take approximately 3 months before 75 percent of the US population could be vaccinated. White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has estimated that 70-80 percent of the population would need to be vaccinated before a return to normalcy can take place.
Almost half the country’s adult population, and around 80% of those 65 and older, have received at least one dose, CDC data shows.
