COVID U.S: White House says Fifty percent of American adults fully vaccinated

The White House on Tuesday announced the US reaching a new milestone when it comes to vaccinations, with 50% of adults becoming fully vaccinated. United States President Joe Biden informed that half of the country's adults are completely vaccinated against COVID-19. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, vaccinating half of the adult Americans has marked significant progress since the vaccines were first authorized in December.

In his tweet, Biden noted: "As of today, 50 percent of American adults are fully vaccinated. That's a big deal, folks. This is a major milestone in our country's vaccination efforts," White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt said, nothing that 1 percent of adults were fully vaccinated when the Biden administration came into office. It further reported that the achievement symbolizes a step closer to President Biden's next goal of getting 70 percent of adults to have at least one vaccine dose by the fourth of July. Currently, 61.6 percent of American adults, or almost 159 million people, have reached this point.

White House officials have been focused on increasing accessibility to the vaccines, combating misinformation and assisting those without the resources to get vaccinated as they race to get shots in arms across the country.

The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines were first given emergency authorization in December about a month before former President Trump left office. Early in the vaccination effort, certain groups of adults, such as health care workers and elderly people, were prioritized for vaccines.
