Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data has confirmed that half of U.S. adults, or more than 129 million Americans, are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the White House said Tuesday.
"This is a major milestone in our country's vaccination efforts," said White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt. About 164 million Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, according to the CDC.
President Biden said earlier this month he was aiming for 160 million Americans to be fully vaccinated and for 70 percent of American adults to have received at least one dose by July 4, which he said would be a "serious step towards a return to normal." Everyone age 12 and up is now eligible to be vaccinated. [ABC News, CNN]

Horrible in itself,
disaster is sometimes a door back into paradise,
that paradise at least in which we are who we hope to be,
do the work we desire,
and are each our sister's and brother's keeper."
Rebecco Solnit as quoted in the June, 2020, Sojourners Magazine, p. 12
