More than half of the U.S. adult population has received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, the White House said.
In the United States, 100 million adults are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. This was stated by the White House pandemic response coordinator Jeffrey Zints, CNN reported on Friday, April 30.
вЂњThis is a hundred million Americans with a sense of relief and peace, knowing that after a long and difficult year, they are protected from the virus,вЂќ Zints said.
Note that 100 million people are 38% of the adult population of the country. At the same time, 55% of the adult population received at least one dose of the vaccine. In total, about 240 million vaccinations were made in the United States, Axios writes.
In turn, US President Joe Biden assured that by the end of May, there will be enough vaccines for every adult American. At the moment, every American over the age of 16 is eligible for COVID vaccination nationwide.
Authorities in the United States have launched TV ads to encourage vaccination and increase public confidence in vaccines as they become more widely available. Nearly $10 billion more will be allocated to increase access to and confidence in vaccines in hard-hit communities across the country.
Recall that earlier in the world, the number of COVID-19 infections exceeded 150 million. Countries with more than 10 million cases of coronavirus infection include the United States, India, and Brazil.
