About half of that number has already taken the complete vaccine and is able, according to American authorities, to be able to travel.

To date, more than 100 million people have received at least one dose of a vaccine against covid-19 in the United States, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The data released by the main US federal public health agency show that 101.8 million people have received at least one inoculation and 58 million are already vaccinated, and they can start traveling again, maintaining precautionary measures such as wearing a mask and physical distance.

US President Joe Biden promised that 90% of adults would be vaccinated by April 19 and announced the goal of 200 million vaccines within 100 days of taking office so that Americans can join “in small groups” to celebrate the national festival of the 4th of July.

Three vaccines are authorized in the United States, that of Johnson and Johnson (which requires only one inoculation), that of the Pfizer / BioNTech alliance and that of Moderna (both with two doses).

The US health authorities have also announced that people who are already vaccinated against covid-19 can start traveling again, and for internal travel it will not be necessary to quarantine or perform a screening test.

In contrast, vaccinated persons arriving in the United States from other countries will be required to submit a negative test prior to departure, with a new test being recommended three to five days after entering the country, with local authorities required to comply with quarantine. .

Vaccinated travelers traveling abroad will only have to pass a negative test before leaving the United States if required by the country of destination.

A person is considered vaccinated two weeks after inoculation (the second dose for vaccines that require it).

“More than one adult in five is now fully vaccinated” in the United States, Rochelle Walensky, director of the CDC, said in a press conference.

The covid-19 pandemic caused at least 2,829,089 deaths worldwide, resulting from more than 129.5 million cases of infection, according to a report made by the French agency AFP.

The disease is transmitted by a new coronavirus detected in late 2019 in Wuhan, a city in central China.
