The White House confirmed that the U.S. administered nearly 3 million COVID-19 vaccinations Saturday, more than any other country.

Chief of Staff Ronald Klain tweeted in his post, "With the 6 am cut off, the total would have been 2.98m, more COVID shots than any country has administered on any day in this crisis — a world’s best record."

Klein's tweet was in response to a Bloomberg reporter’s tweet claiming that the federal government’s latest report of administering daily doses, at 4.6 million, was misleading. The Bloomberg reporter posted, "The boring answer: It's a one-time methodological bump from a later-than-usual CDC data pull that sucked in more data than usual."

According to the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 37.4 million Americans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, representing more than 11% of the total population in the U.S.

President Joe Biden announced that the county can expect to get another 100 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine.

Even before this announcement, the U.S. is supposed to have enough vaccines as the President plans to administer all adults by the end of May and enough vaccine for 400 million people total by the end of July.

Doses to cover 200 million more people are on order should come from AstraZeneca and Novavax after approval from the Food and Drug
