December 22, 2009 - The United States administered 499.013,558 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Wednesday morning and distributed 609.035,545 doses, said the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Those figures are up from the 497,375,025 vaccine doses that the CDC said had gone into arms by Dec. 21 out of 606,309,295 doses delivered.

A medical agency said 241,583,543 people have received at least one vaccine while 204,818,717 people are fully vaccinated as of 6:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

This tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson's one-shot vaccine.

Over 63 million people received either Pfizer or Moderna's vaccine since Aug. 13, when the United States authorized the third dose of the vaccines for people with compromised immune systems who might have weaker protection from the two-dose regimen.
