President Joe Biden today claimed that 350 million Americans have been vaccinated, but did that happen? Is that even possible?
“Well over, what’s the number again, I have to remind myself,” the President said. “Over 350 million Americans have already been vaccinated. They’re doing fine.”
Did 350 million Americans get vaccinated?
How many people live in America and how many got vaccinated?
According to the CDC, only 166 million people have been vaccinated. According to the U.S. Census, the total population of the United States has a total population of only 328.2 million. It would be impossible for 350 million Americans to be fully vaccinated.
Where did Joe Biden get the number of 350 million as how many Americans vaccinated?
On the other hand, the CDC does report that 349 million doses of the vaccinated have been administered, including first and second doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines which require two separate shots.
It seems clear that Joe Biden misinterpreted his notes when he made the claim that 350 million Americans have been vaccinated and what he should have said was 350 million doses of the vaccine have been administered.
Fact Check: False, 350 million Americans have not been fully vaccinated.
