The White House on Monday expressed joy on the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stating that 70% of US adults have received at least one Covid-19 vaccination shot.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the milestone is a “significant step” in the efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“I would say it’s a significant step that we have hit 70% of people in this country, of adults, who are vaccinated,” Psaki said.

“That’s a good sign”, Psaki added.

Based on the data gathered by CDC, 49.7% of the total US population is fully vaccinated, and 57.8% of the US population has received at least one dose.

Of the Americans eligible to receive one of the three authorized Covid-19 vaccines — those people who are 12 years old and older — 58.1% are fully vaccinated and 67.6% have received at least one shot.

The CDC data also shows that 164.9 million people in the US are fully vaccinated and more than 346.9 million Covid-19 shots have been administered.
