May 9th COVID-19 Vaccinations, New Cases, Hospitalizations

President Biden has set two vaccinations goals to achieve by July 4th:
1) 70% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose of vaccine, and
2) 160 million Americans fully vaccinated.

According to the CDC, on Vaccinations. Total administered: 259,716,989. Yesterday: 257,347,205. Daily: 2.37 million.

 
1) 58.0% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose.
2) 113.2 million Americans are fully vaccinated.

Note: I’ll stop posting this daily once all three of these criteria are met:
1) 70% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose of vaccine, and
2) new cases are under 5,000 per day, and
3) hospitalizations are below 3,000.
