The majority of all Americans have received at least one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine or the single shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.

As of Friday evening, 50.1% of all Americans were partially vaccinated.

The benchmark comes three days after CDC data showed half of all adults in the US were fully vaccinated. That number is now up to 50.9%.

More than 62% of adults are partially vaccinated, and more than 40% of all Americans are fully vaccinated.

The highest rate of vaccinations continues to be among people ages 65 and older, with nearly 75% of them fully vaccinated and 85.7% partially vaccinated.

On May 10, the US authorized Pfizer-BioNTech's coronavirus vaccine for teenagers, making it the first and only COVID-19 shot approved for 12- to 15-year-olds in the country.

Last week, Moderna announced that vaccine trials showed the shot was safe and effective for teenagers, which could help boost supply. Johnson & Johnson started testing its single-dose vaccine in adolescents 12 to 17 years of age in April.

As vaccinations continue to increase in the county, pre-pandemic norms are starting to return. The CDC updated its guidelines earlier this month, and more and more states have started lifting restrictions for vaccinated people.
