As of April 18, 2021, 3:56 PM EST, the global vaccination count was 894 million. Vaccines have been administered in 155 countries and are averaging 16.60 million inoculations per day.
In the United States, 209,406,814 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 3,194,240 inoculations per day. The number of vaccinations fell slightly in the past week as the US amid growing concerns over vaccine side effects.
So far 131 million Americans, 50.9 percent of the adult population, have received at least one dose. 84.3 million people have been fully inoculated.
- 39.5 percent of the population has received the first dose
- 25.4 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated

- California is the leading US state with around 26 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.
