Those figures are up from the 378,569,717 vaccine doses the CDC said had gone into people’s arms by Sept. 10, out of 454,332,805 doses delivered.

The Atlanta-based agency said 209,099,300 people had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 178,328,389 people were fully vaccinated as of 6 a.m. EDT on Saturday.

The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA) and Pfizer/BioNTech, as well as the one-dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ).

More than 1.7 million people have received an additional dose of either the Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) or Moderna vaccine since Aug. 13, when the United States authorized a third dose for people with compromised immune systems who are likely to have weaker protection from the two-dose regimens.
