Nov. 9 (Reuters) – The United States has administered 433,156,393 doses of COVID-19 vaccines into the country and distributed 536,665,505 doses as of Tuesday morning, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Those numbers are higher than the 432,111,860 vaccine doses that the CDC said had gone on the run on Nov. 8 of the 534,086,695 doses delivered.

The agency said 224,257,467 people had received at least one dose, while 194,168,611 people had been fully vaccinated by 6 a.m. ET Tuesday.

The CDC count includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna (MRNA.O) and Pfizer/BioNTech (PFE.N), as well as the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine (JNJ.N).

About 25.4 million people have received a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. Booster doses from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson were approved by the US health regulator on October 20.
