U.S. passes 100 million COVID vaccinations, sets new one-day record

The U.S. has passed a milestone of 100,000,000 COVID vaccinations administered, with the country setting a one-day, 2.9 million-injection record on Friday, the White House says. 

The massive figures come shortly after President Joe Biden announced a national goal of having universal vaccine availability to all U.S. adults by May 1 of this year. 

The COVID vaccine mostly comes in two doses, and the 100,000,000 figure represents about 35,000,000 full doses and a further 65,000,000 half-doses.
