(Reuters) - The United States has administered 475,728,399 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Wednesday morning and distributed 586,471,075 doses, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Those figures are up from the 473,243,228 vaccine doses the CDC said had gone into arms by Tuesday out of 582,057,445 doses delivered.

The agency said 237,087,380 people had received at least one dose while 200,400,533 people are fully vaccinated as of 6:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

The CDC tally includes two-dose vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech, as well as Johnson & Johnson's one-shot vaccine.

About 48.9 million people received a booster dose of either Pfizer, Moderna or J&J's COVID-19 vaccine. Booster doses from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson were authorized by the U.S. health regulator on Oct. 20.
