Our full story on the milestone here is below, from @FayCortez + @emmarcourt.

Globally, more than 100M doses have been administered as well.

The lower-than-usual 1M doses today is of an unknown cause. It's not the ❄️☃️🌨️, since we know doses reported typically lag the on-the-ground situation by a few days. Image
📊Here is our U.S. leaderboard:

As usual, our full graphic, charts and tables are available here. A big welcome to @emmarcourt on her first data shift with us!

❄️Regarding the epic snow on the East Coast, we have heard of states/localities canceling/postponing vaccine appoints for the day, because of weather. This should show up in data in a few days, because of lag.
And yes, I know there were storms in the midwest as well. As somebody who grew up in Michigan, I'd note that it doesn't tend to shut things down there like it does here out east...

🇺🇸1.8M doses today; 7-day avg=1.36M/day
🏅Biggest U.S. day of reported vaccinations yet, by our count

📊US: 38.5M doses total
🧑‍🤝‍🧑28.9M w/ 1+ doses, 8.09M completed vaccination

As expected, the number of people completing vaccination is starting to pick up quickly. It should trail the first-dose rate by about 3.5 weeks (assuming supply remains steady)

🇺🇸US: 36.7M doses admin
🧑‍🤝‍🧑28.7M w/ at least 1 dose
➕1.7M doses today; 7-day avg=1.34M

☝️U.S. snow lull appears to be over!❄️

In the U.S., states have started taking unused doses from nursing homes and pulling them back into their state distribution systems -- this should tighten up some of the slack in the system. Per @angelicalavito

In our global rate chart, China makes infrequent reports. Those reports are very big. So it ends up looking...weird. This will likely clean up over time, but the data are the data.

📊We have a VERY cool new feature letting you see how long your state/country will take to reach 75% coverage with a vaccine. Check it out below!

For example, here's the situation in Canada -- which was an early leader in acquiring doses:

You can look by state. Here's NY, where at current rates it'll take 17 months to cover 75% of the population:

Over the last two days, the U.S. suffered a major drop-off in daily vaccinations reported.

❄️❄️As it turns out, yes, you can blame the snow. ❄️❄️

Here's how the chart of daily vaccinations counted looks in the reporting period for the storm (data avail on our tracker bloomberg.com/graphics/covid…) Image
As @jillrshah reports, many East Coast states basically canceled vaccinations over the last two days as the weather hit. NJ, CT, NY all had vaccination cancelations.

Ditto Maryland, which canceled many appointments. Look at their daily rate chart: Image

⚠️CDC *DID NOT* update today (lowers day total/avg)

So what's up with California, which is always at the bottom of the ranking for "% of doses used"?

🤦‍♂️Basically it sounds like *part* of the problem was that people around the state weren't hitting "submit" at the end of the day, @angelicalavito reports.

Here are your U.S. leaders.

⚠️The lack of a CDC update tends to depress numbers substantially.
