The United States averages 2.4 million reported vaccinations per day over the past week, up from a peak of 3.4 million daily vaccines on April 13.

United States share of vaccinated population
Almost 45% of Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine and 32% are fully vaccinated.
“We’re not going to get everyone vaccinated,” former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Monday.
“If we can get two-thirds of the population immunized or a little better than that, that will be a pretty good level of protection,” he said.
