Time.news – Over 100 million doses of Covid vaccines have been administered in the United States.
This is what emerges from the data of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the US health authorities. The CDC database reports 101.128.005 of administered doses.
President Joe Biden had promised the administration of 100 million vaccines in his first sixty days in office (against 100 initially estimated) and instead succeeded to hit the target in 51 days.
13% of adult Americans are already fully immunized, meaning they have already done the second booster as expected with Pfizer and Moderna serums while Johnson & Johnson’s is single-dose.
Biden will order states to make all American adults eligible for the vaccine by May 1.
The president points to 4th of July, American Independence Day, as a term for a return to normality, with the possibility of organizing parties to celebrate Independence Day.
For Biden “the fight is not over“and there is” much work still to be done “but the Americans will be able to beat the pandemic and celebrate a” slightly more normal “4th of July.
