The US reports an average of 1.9 million vaccinations per day in the past week, according to CDC data, and 47.4% of the population has received at least one dose of vaccine.
American Covid cases
The average daily Covid case fell to about 33,200 on Sunday, a seven-day average from Hopkins data, a sharp drop from the most recent peak of over 71,000 a day in mid-April.
The average daily number of cases has dropped by at least 5% in more than 40 states in the past week.
American Covid deaths
The latest seven-day average of US Covid deaths is 602, according to Hopkins data, 7% less than the previous week.
On Saturday, the seven-day average of daily deaths fell below 600 for the first time since July.
US vaccination shots administered
Federal data shows that the US reported an average of 1.9 million vaccinations per day in the past week. The rate of daily withdrawals has been on a mostly downward trend since it peaked at 3.4 million a day on April 13.
Vaccination numbers could get a boost in the coming weeks, as the CDC signed last week for extensive use of Pfizer’s and BioNTech’s vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds.
US share of the vaccinated population
According to the CDC, more than 47% of the U.S. population has been at least partially vaccinated and 37% has been fully vaccinated.
Of those 18 and older, nearly 60% have received at least one injection.
