    Updated: 12/21/2020 As of 9:00am ET

    • Total doses distributed are cumulative counts of COVID-19 vaccine doses recorded as shipped in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Tracking System (VTrckS) since December 13, 2020. Cumulative totals reflect data available as of 9:00am ET on the day of reporting.

    • Total doses administered are cumulative counts of individual COVID-19 vaccine doses as reported to the CDC by state, territorial, and local public health agencies and five federal entities (Bureau of Prisons, Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, Department of State, and Indian Health Services) since December 14, 2020. Cumulative doses administered reflect current data available as of 9:00am ET on the day of reporting.

    • Doses distributed are for both Moderna and Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine; administered doses are for Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine only at this time.

    Healthcare providers report doses to state, territorial, and local public health agencies up to 72 hours after administration. There may be additional reporting lag for data to be transmitted from the state, territorial, or local public health agency to CDC. A large difference between the number of doses distributed and the number of doses administered is expected at this point in the COVID vaccination program due to several factors, including delays in reporting of administered doses, management of available vaccine stocks by jurisdictions, and pending launch of vaccination through the federal Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program.

    Numbers reported on other websites may differ from what is posted on CDC’s website because CDC’s overall numbers are validated through a data submission process with each jurisdiction. Differences between reporting jurisdictions and CDC’s website may occur due to the timing of reporting and website updates. The process used for reporting doses distributed or doses administered displayed by other sites may differ.
