The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says almost one hundred and thirty million people aged eighteen or older have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine.

The news marks another milestone in the nation's largest-ever vaccination campaign. It also leaves more work to do to convince skeptical Americans to roll up their sleeves.

Dr. Anthony Fauci also believes the pause on the Johnson and Johnson vaccine could end sometime this week. Use of the one-shot product was temporarily halted after blood clots were linked to the deaths six female patients.
