The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the United States has already administered 379,472,220 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Saturday morning and distributed 456,755,075 doses.
The figures mentioned are up from the 378,569,717 vaccine doses the CDC said had gone into people's arms by Sept. 10, out of 454,332,805 doses delivered.
The Atlanta-based agency said that 209,099,300 people had already received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 178,328,389 people were fully vaccinated as of 6 a.m. EDT on Saturday.

The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech, as well as the one-dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.

It is also reported that there are more than 1.7 million people have received an additional dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine since the 2nd week of August, when the United States authorized a third dose for people with compromised immune systems who are likely to have weaker protection from the two-dose procedures.
