As of April 18, 2021, 3:56 PM EST, the global vaccination count was over 1 billion. Vaccines have been administered in 172 countries and are averaging 18.30 million inoculations per day.
In the United States, 225,640,460 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 2,824,078 inoculations per day. The number of vaccinations fell slightly in the past week as the US addressed concerns over the Johnson&Johnson vaccine.
So far 139 million Americans, 53.8 percent of the adult population, have received at least one dose. 93.1 million people have been fully inoculated.
- 41.8 percent of the population has received the first dose
- 28.0 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated
- 77.6 percent of shots delivered have been administered.
- California is the leading US state with over 28 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.
