2.1 Million in the U.S. Have Been Vaccinated


#Over 2 million people in the #United #States have received a vaccine for the #Chinese coronavirus, according to the #Centers for #Disease #Control and #Prevention (CDC).

#According to the agency’s #Monday update, 11,445,175 million doses of both the #Pfizer and #Moderna vaccines have been distributed across the #United #States, although only 2,127,143 have received the first dose, per #Monday’s data.

#On #Christmas #Eve, the CDC reported that over 1 million had received the vaccine.

The news comes as top public health officials emphasize the importance of receiving the vaccine. They further stress that reaching a semblance of normality in 2021 is largely dependent on what #Dr. #Anthony #Fauci described as getting the “overwhelming majority” of the population vaccinated.

“It’s going to depend on our success in vaccinating what I would say is an overwhelming majority of the population, between 70 to 85 percent,” #Fauci said during an appearance on PODCAST-19 last week.

“If we can do that, by mid to end of the summer, I think as we get into fall, #October, #November, times like that, I think we will be very close to a degree of normality,” he added.

#Similarly, #New #York #Gov. #Andrew #Cuomo (D) on #Monday said the course of 2021, or a “post-COVID future,” depends largely on “getting those vaccines now in people’s arms.”

“What does 2021 look like? 2021 looks like what we’re going to make it look like. #It’s going to be what we do, and, clearly, the key is going to be the vaccine,” he said.

“It’s the one really good piece of news we had in 2020 — was that the research community, the medical community, came up with highly effective vaccines,” he continued.

“So it’s about getting those vaccines now in people’s arms right? … #But what matters is getting it in people’s arms,” the #Cuomo stressed.

#Vaccines have, thus far, been limited to frontline healthcare workers as well as more vulnerable populations, although members of #Congress are also able to receive the vaccine. #Some, such as #Sen. #Rand #Paul (R-KY) and #Rep. #Ilhan #Omar (D-MN), have expressed their opposition to lawmakers receiving the vaccine before the more vulnerable members of the population.

The CDC reported 19,055,869 cumulative cases of the #Wuhan virus nationwide as of #Monday.
