Nov. 16 (Reuters) – The United States had delivered 443,374,199 doses of COVID-19 vaccines into the country as of Tuesday morning and distributed 556,077,145 doses, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Those numbers are higher than the 442,005,260 doses of vaccine that the CDC said had gone into battle on Nov. 15 of the 553,705,305 doses delivered.

The agency said 227,691,941 people had received at least one dose, while 195,435,688 people had been fully vaccinated as of 6:00 a.m. ET on 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 30.7 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.
