Half of all US adults fully vaccinated against COVID — White House

Half of all US adults will have received full Covid-19 vaccines on Tuesday, the White House says, marking another huge milestone in the fight against the pandemic.

“Today, the United States will reach 50 percent of American adults fully vaccinated,” a White House official says, speaking on condition of anonymity.

More than half a million Americans have died from the coronavirus but the country is now a world leader in rolling out vaccinations.
