Percentage of vaccinated Americans

According to the CDC, just over 50% of Americans are fully vaccinated, and nearly 60% have received at least one dose. The data SAS collected for this visualization reflects that of health agencies such as the CDC. You can also view just how many more shots are needed for 95% of the population to be vaccinated.

How vaccinations relate to rising/falling cases

As the charts show, when mass vaccinations began, a steady rise of vaccinations generally led to a decreased number of new COVID-19 cases. However, with the rise of new variants and vaccination rates plateauing, daily cases are spiking, coming close to evening the number of new vaccinations, or surpassing it.

Curious to see how a specific date and number of fully vaccinated Americans correlates to the number of daily new cases? Plot a few points on the charts and let your curiosity roam.

Shipped, used dosage and completed vaccinations among providers

On December 13th, 2020, Sandra Lindsay, a nurse in New York, became the first American to receive a vaccine dose outside of a clinical trial. That provider? Pfizer/BioNTech. To date, the company has vaccinated more Americans than rival providers Moderna and Johnson&Johnson.
