As of Feb. 23, the C.D.C. reports these figures based on where individuals reside, rather than the vaccine provider’s location. This led to an especially noticeable change in Washington, D.C.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Sunday about 49.8 million people have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, including about 24.8 million people who have been fully vaccinated.

The work to distribute the vaccine comes as more than 511,000 people in the United States have died after contracting the virus.

How Quickly Are Shots Going in Arms?

Providers are administering about 1.74 million doses per day on average. Figures show the date shots were reported, rather than the date shots were given.

President Biden has promised to administer 100 million vaccines by his 100th day in office. He set a goal shortly after taking office last month for the United States to administer more than 1.5 million doses a day, despite criticism that it was not ambitious enough.

Federal regulators have given emergency approval to vaccines developed by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. Both vaccines require patients to receive two doses spaced weeks apart.

The federal government has delivered about 96.4 million doses to states, territories and federal agencies.

When Might a Majority of People Have Been Vaccinated?

Some experts have estimated that 70 to 90 percent of the population needs to acquire resistance to the coronavirus to reach herd immunity, when transmission of the virus substantially slows because enough people have been protected through infection or vaccination.

A number of factors will determine how quickly this threshold is met, especially the pace at which newly vaccinated people join those who are immune after past infections. But the presence of more transmissible virus variants could complicate that progress.

The projection below only shows the share of the total population with at least one shot based on the current rate of vaccination, but it provides a rough indication of when the virus’s spread could begin to stall.

When a given share of the U.S. population might be at least partially vaccinated

The current vaccination rate is based on average daily increase in first doses administered over the past week.

If the country maintains its current pace of administering first doses, about half of the total population would be at least partially vaccinated around mid-July, and nearly all around early December, assuming supply pledges are met and vaccines are eventually available to children.

When Could the United States Reach Herd Immunity? It’s Complicated.

How Is Each State Performing?

Some jurisdictions have been more efficient than others at administering their doses from the federal government. The table below includes states, territories, federal agencies and three countries with special agreements with the United States: Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.

*Includes doses provided to Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.

Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; U.S. Census Bureau | Note: Extra doses in Pfizer vials and data reporting inconsistencies may result in the percentage of doses used adding up to more than 100. Geographically isolated areas such as Alaska, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands can place orders for multiple weeks at once.

There are many reasons for variation among the states and territories, including demand for the vaccine, lags in data reporting and other logistical challenges. Mr. Biden recently announced plans to expand supply and to give states more advance notice about the number of shots available to them each week.

Who Is Eligible for a Vaccine?

Health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities have been eligible for vaccination in every state for weeks.

The federal government recently recommended that states allow people 65 and older to get vaccinated. But states create and implement their own plans, and sometimes counties deviate from those plans, leading to a national patchwork of policies.

The New York Times periodically surveys all 50 states and has found that every state has begun widely giving shots to older people, though age ranges differ from place to place. The Times tracks statewide rules, and adds county-level discrepancies as that information arises.

Where older adults are eligible for vaccines

Every state has started widely vaccinating older adults, though the minimum eligibility age varies across the country.

The table below, which will be updated regularly but may lag slightly, shows who is eligible for vaccination in each state, in addition to health care workers and long-term care residents. In many instances, people may be eligible for a vaccine but unable to make an appointment. And some counties may delay or pause eligibility for certain groups even after a state expands access.

The Times regularly tracks statewide eligibility based on age, occupation and underlying health conditions, and notes states where that information is known to vary by county.

Who is currently eligible for the vaccine in each state

Data as recent as Feb. 26.

Sources: State and county health departments.

At least 45 states and Washington, D.C., have also expanded their occupation-based vaccination programs to include some non-medical workers, such as police officers, grocery store employees or others at risk of being exposed to the virus on the job. At least 32 states and Washington, D.C., are allowing some teachers to get shots.

The sudden expansion of vaccine eligibility has caused problems as states have sought to increase capacity and people have tried to figure out how to sign up for appointments.

About the Data

Data on vaccines delivered and administered comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which updates data daily.

The federal data may differ from that reported by states and territories, which may post on different schedules. Providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and it can take additional time for jurisdictions and the C.D.C. to receive this information.

The C.D.C. notes that total doses administered are based on the location where the vaccine was given, and that in limited cases, people might get a vaccine outside of their place of residency. As of Feb. 23, the C.D.C. reports the number of people receiving one or more doses based on where individuals reside.

On Feb. 19, the C.D.C. began including shots given by the federal agencies in each state’s count. Doses delivered to federal agencies were added to state totals on Feb. 20. Some states, including Alaska, North Dakota and Utah, are supposed to receive supplements for tribal governments that have elected to receive their vaccines through the state, rather than through the federal Indian Health Service.

In addition to delivering vaccines to states, territories and some federal agencies, the C.D.C. also distributes doses to three small countries that have special agreements with the U.S. government: Palau, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.

The C.D.C. also reports state-level data on the number of shots administered to people in nursing homes and long-term-care centers.
