60% of Americans Fully-Vaccinated
The U.S. CDC's reported late on December 6, 2021, sixty percent of people 5 years of age and older are now fully-vaccinated in the U.S.
This data indicates about 199 million people are better protected against severe COVID-19!
For surveillance purposes, COVID Data Tracker counts people as being "fully vaccinated" if they received two doses on different days of the two-dose mRNA series or received one dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, such as the Janssen (J&J) vaccine.
'If you have a condition or are taking medications that weaken your immune system, you may not be fully protected even if you are fully vaccinated and have received an additional dose.'
'If you are fully vaccinated and become infected with the SARS-CoV-2 Delta or Omicron variant, you can spread the virus to others.'
'It would be best if you continued to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people until advised otherwise by your healthcare provider,' says the CDC.
Also, on December 6, 2021, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control reported 66.4% of Europeans had been fully vaccinated.
In Europe, the European Medicines Agency has Authorized four COVID-19 vaccines and is reviewing five other vaccines.
Globally, over 120 COVID-19 vaccine candidates are undergoing clinical trials, reported GAVI.
