20OCT Covid-19 New Infections

In the latest official vaccine update with vaccination data up until October 17, this week saw 2 days with over 1 million vaccines administered. Over 65 million vaccines have been administered now, with 37.6 million receiving their first dose only, just over 26 million being fully vaccinated, and about 1.9 million receiving a booster shot. The numbers regarding third vaccinations are still unclear as the discrepancy previously reported has been balanced by the DDC by reporting negative vaccination numbers on September 19 and 25, -161,768 and -20,241 respectively.
