The United States has administered 382,294,795 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country and distributed 461,117,525 doses.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those figures are up from the 381,453,265 vaccine doses out of 458,771,465 doses delivered.

“Over 210,361,099 people had received at least one dose while 179,695,287 people are fully vaccinated.”

The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech, as well as Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine.

Over 1.9 million people received an additional dose of either Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccine since Aug. 13, when the U.S. authorized a third dose of the vaccines for people with compromised immune systems who are likely to have weaker protection from the two-dose regimens.
