U.S. Could Have Enough Vaccine for Entire Population by July: Report

With two coronavirus vaccines currently in circulation and the approval of a third imminent, the U.S. is on pace to have enough doses to fully vaccinate the nation’s population by the end of July.

Since vaccinations began in December, about 73.4 million doses have been dispensed to the 50 states and other U.S. jurisdictions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, the companies that developed the two-shot coronavirus vaccines being administered nationwide, have both pledged to deliver 200 million doses apiece by May’s end, CNN reported.

Johnson & Johnson is set to also apply for emergency-use authorization of its one-dose vaccine from the Food and Drug Administration in the coming days. Upon approval, the company says it will deliver 100 million doses by the end of June.

Additionally, Moderna has promised to deliver 100 million more doses by the end of July. At that point, the U.S. will have acquired enough doses to fully vaccinate the entire population, CNN reported.

As of Friday, the U.S. has administered roughly 58 million doses of the 73.4 million available, with 16 million people having received both doses of the two-shot vaccines currently available.
