US VACCINATES 10 MILLION PERSONS

About 10 million persons have received their first jab of the COVID-19 vaccine in the US, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).


Reports say that of the 29,380,125 doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines sent to states, 10,278,462 have been administered as first doses. This means 3.1% of the total population of roughly 330 million people.


However, the rollout for the vaccinations is far behind the number estimated by authorities. US Government had hoped to reach 20 million people by the end of December.


Israel has vaccinated the most people per capita against COVID-19, closely followed by the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Britain, then the US.


On November 9, Pfizer said its COVID-19 vaccine was 90% effective against the COVID-19 disease, while Moderna announced on November 16 that its vaccine was 94% effective.


On January 3, the PTF announced that Nigeria would receive its first consignment of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at the end of January.


The United Kingdom (UK), United States (US), and several other countries have received their first batch of the jab amid growing concerns of a new COVID-19 viral strain.
