More than 15% of the total U.S. population has been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With more than 143 million doses administered, over 93 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine and more than 51 million people have been fully vaccinated. The vast majority of vaccines administered so far came from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech. Johnson & Johnson has delivered nearly 5 million doses, according to the data. CDC's data tracker counts people as fully vaccinated if they got two doses on different days of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or received one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. But the agency urges people to wait two weeks after their final shot to consider themselves fully vaccinated. While vaccination rates are climbing, so are cases. The seven-day average of daily cases continues to tick upward, with an average of nearly 57,000 cases being recorded every day.
