Half of U.S. Adults Have Received at Least One COVID Shot

This is a milestone for the vaccination campaign

Half of all U.S. adults have now received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), marking a major milestone in the country’s largest vaccine campaign.

More than 129 million people ages 18 and older have received at least one shot, or 50.4 percent of the total adult population, according to the CDC. More than 83 million adults, or 32.5 percent of the total adult population, are fully vaccinated with one of the three vaccines approved in the U.S.

The milestone comes one day after the global death toll from the virus topped 3 million people, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University, with global deaths averaging about 12,000 each day.
