200M COVID-19 shots administered in US

United States authorities reported on Friday that at least 200 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were so far administered in people's arms with a pace of about 1% of the population getting a shot every day.

US President Joe Biden's initial goal was to achieve a number of 100 million shots in the first 100 days of his presidency. The target was reached in 89 days. Since then, the second 100 million jabs were completed in 36 days.

Currently, over 78.5 million people in America are fully vaccinated, which accounts for 23.6% of the population. About 40% of the nation's population have already received at least one dose.
