The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on January 11th local time that nearly 9 million Americans have been vaccinated against the first COVID-19 vaccine, and the United States has distributed nearly 25.5 million doses of vaccine so far.
As of the morning of the 11th, the proportion of coronavirus vaccinations distributed in the United States was 35.3%, compared with 30.2% on the 9th.
The vaccination efficiency is still relatively slow. The CDC said that by 9 a.m. EDT on the 11th, a total of 25,480,725 doses of vaccine had been distributed in the United States, and 89,87,322 people had already received the first injection.
CDC also said that 4,239,775 doses of COVID-19 have been distributed to long-term care facilities such as nursing homes as federally planned, where 937,028 people have been injected with their first dose of COVID-19.
The United States is still trying to catch up with the promised goal of vaccinating 20 million people against COVID-19.
But some states say they don’t have enough staff or funds to get the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly as required.
