Points
  • The United States has reached a significant milestone in the pandemic, according to the White House.
  • White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said during a briefing on Friday that 100 million Americans have now been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, "nearly double" the 55 million Americans who had been fully vaccinated as of the end of March.
  • He later clarified this is the number of Americans who have received both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine.
  • A person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving this dose, according to the CDC.
  • "That's 100 million Americans with a sense of relief and peace of mind, knowing that after a long and hard year, they're protected from the virus," Zients said.
