U.S. Confirms Increases in COVID-19 Vaccinations and Adverse Events
The U.S. COVID-19 Vaccination Program began in December 2020, and as of June 10, 305.7 million vaccine doses have been administered, reported the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on June 11, 2021.
Overall, about 42.6% of the total U.S. population has been fully vaccinated.
And, the COVID Data Tracker Vaccination Demographic Trends tab shows that 75.8% of people over 65 are fully vaccinated.
However, as of June 10th, the 7-day average number of administered vaccine doses reported to CDC per day was 1.1 million, a 13.87% increase from the previous week.
Moreover, the U.S. VAERS had received reports of myocarditis or pericarditis among people ages 30 and younger who received a COVID-19 vaccine. Through follow-up, including medical record reviews, the CDC and FDA have confirmed 268 reports of myocarditis or pericarditis.
Additionally, through June 7th, VAERS received 5,208 reports of death among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records, has not established a causal link to COVID-19 vaccines, says the CDC.
