AFP reported that according to the CDC, 114,762 people have received at least one dose of the vaccine, representing more than 30% of the U.S. population.

Nearly 58 million of these Americans have received a complete vaccination, including multiple single or double doses. More than half of these fully vaccinated people are 65 years of age or older.

President Biden pledged last week that 90 percent of the country’s adults will be eligible for the new crown vaccine on April 19.

In addition, Biden proposed to provide 200 million doses of vaccine in his 100th day in office, a one-fold increase from his goal at the end of March.
