Almost 50% of United States is fully vaccinated

WASHINGTON – According to data released Friday on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, half of the overall US population has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

By Friday, more than 50% of the US population — more than 165.9 million people – had been fully vaccinated against the virus. According to the figures, more than 193.7 million people, or 58.4 percent of all Americans, have received at least one dose.

The 50% mark was reached amid a surge in new Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations in regions of the United States, mostly due to the delta version.

“America can defeat the Delta variety just as we defeated the original Covid-19,” President Joe Biden declared at the White House on Friday, adding that the virus is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

“We can do it, therefore wear a mask when advised and get vaccinated today.” All of this will save lives, and it means we won’t experience the same kind of economic harm as we saw when Covid-19 began,” he said.

Earlier this week, 70% of US people have gotten at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, falling a month short of President Joe Biden’s Fourth of July target.

On December 14, 2020, the first Covid-19 vaccine was administered in the United States.
