by Calculated Risk on 5/12/2021 04:00:00 PM

According to the CDC, on Vaccinations. Total administered: 264,680,844, as of yesterday: 263,132,561. Day: 1.55 million.  (U.S. Capacity is around 4 million per day)
1) 58.7% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose (70% goal by July 4th).
2) 116.4 million Americans are fully vaccinated (160 million goal)

Note: I'll stop posting this daily once all three of these criteria are met:
1) 70% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose of vaccine, and
2) new cases are under 5,000 per day, and
3) hospitalizations are below 3,000.
