In the United States, vaccination reaches record speed. The country is stepping on the gas, aware that general immunization is its ticket back to normality. Millions of people receive their daily dose.
The Easter holiday is also widely celebrated in the United States, however, it does not prevent today from reaching 4 million vaccinated per day, which is a new vaccination record and more than 104 million Americans have already received at least one dose against the coronavirus.
“First day with 4 million or more. It’s also the first time we’ve averaged more than 3 million doses a day in the last week. Millions of people are coming together to accelerate our progress toward controlling the pandemic,” said Cyrus Shahpar, Covid-19 chief data officer at the White House.
60 million people are already fully immunized
This number means that 1 in 3 Americans are now virtually immunized against the virus. The two doses have already been received by some 60 million people. However, the other side of the coin is that the return to normalcy is causing a major wave of infections among those who have not yet been vaccinated.
In addition, at-risk groups and the elderly are getting closer every day to being completely safe from the coronavirus – about 41 million U.S. seniors, 75% of that group, have received at least one dose of the vaccine, and 54.7% of Americans over 65 are fully vaccinated.
Joe Biden promised that 90% of adults could receive the vaccines by April 19.
