Besides that change in reporting style, the CDC data show good progress at growing the number of daily vaccinations.
+1,130,189 vaccinations from yesterday — first day EVER over 1 million.
Weekly average of ~820,000 vaccinations per day.
1.6 million Americans have received both doses, as of Friday.
Previous reports from the CDC appeared to misleadingly count 2nd booster doses under "Total Number of People Initiating Vaccination." This figure is now labeled "Total Doses Administered."
VACCINE UPDATE: Nearly 10.6 million Americans have gotten at least 1 dose of a coronavirus vaccine, per CDC data.
CDC updated their data with more clarity, dividing into people receiving 1 or more doses, and those receiving 2. (Thread/x) https://t.co/UGCmuxXQxk
ICYMI: @AndrewE_Dunn talks about the development of Johnson & Johnson new COVID vaccine
"They have been running a late stage clinical trail testing a single dose vaccine which will be remarkably simpler logistically as far as one dose and your vaccinated" https://t.co/tUi72U9Pt1
"I am shocked and appalled that they have set an expectation on which they could not deliver, with such grave consequences," Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tweeted.
The latest on the chaotic vaccine rollout in the US:
OWS is the Trump team's name for their program. We are phasing in a new structure, which will have a different name than OWS. Many of the public servants will be essential to our response, but urgent need to address failures of the Trump team approach to vaccine distribution
One meta takeaway from me: JPM lacked the buzz of previous years.
Can't virtually replicate the densely packed madness typically found in San Francisco, and people didn't feel the need to hold announcements for the conference this year, BCG's Mark Lubkeman told me. https://t.co/9ccnMIdMFe
#JPM21 wrapped up yesterday, capping off a virtual, quieter-than-normal, iteration of the annual healthcare conference.

WaPo reporting that federal officials actually started shipping and releasing the stockpile of second doses weeks ago, without any announcement of the change.
There's no reserve left, so this change is already baked into recent distribution numbers. https://t.co/JZMVkx3CC1
NEW: Vaccine reserve was already exhausted when the Trump administration vowed to begin releasing second doses.
"We can now ship all of the doses that had been held in physical reserve," Azar said Tuesday.
There was no reserve. w/@bylenasunhttps://t.co/Ts8Ome8Yf7
Here's how the 5 biggest states in the US are faring: CA, TX, FL, NY, PA.
% of population that has started to be vaccinated. Appears California is the outlier:
TX — 3.6%
FL — 3.6%
NY — 3.5%
PA — 3.2%
CA — 2.5% https://t.co/IMtXAUFPUD
State vaccination rates matter not just for herd immunity but for future vaccine shipments.
States that lag behind will soon start to receive smaller shipments from Warp Speed, per a new proposal federal officials announced this week.
How big is the delta between these states? Pretty huge, more than 3x larger.
Alabama has reported starting to immunize just 1.9% of its population.
West Virginia, on the other hand, has started vaccinating 6.6% of its residents.
