All U.S. Adults Now Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine

All Americans 16 and older can now receive a coronavirus vaccination, meeting President Biden’s goal of nationwide eligibility by April 19.

As of Monday, more than half of the country’s adults have received at least one dose of the vaccine and about a third are fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The U.S. is presently administering about 3.2 million doses daily, an increase from about 2.5 million a month earlier, The New York Times reported.

Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont were the last states to make the vaccine available to all of its adults.

The U.S. is on track to immunize 70% of its population by mid-June, though vaccine hesitancy and lack of FDA-approved vaccines for children could hinder the country’s path to herd immunity, The Times reported.

As of Monday, the U.S. has administered roughly 209 million of its 264 million available vaccine doses, with 84 million Americans fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.
