Nov. 14 (Reuters) – The United States had administered 440,559,613 doses of COVID-19 vaccines into the country as of Sunday morning, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Those numbers are higher than the 439,034,461 vaccine doses the CDC said went into battle on Nov. 13.

The agency said 226,607,653 people had received at least one dose, while 195,120,470 people had been fully vaccinated as of 6:00 a.m. ET on Sunday.

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 29.3 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.
