Michigan has reported more than 8.7 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered as of Thursday, with 60.8% of 16+ residents having received at least one dose while 52.2% of 16+ residents are considered fully vaccinated.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 33.5 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 600,900 deaths reported from the virus. Globally, more than 2.5 billion vaccine doses have been administered, including more than 314 million doses in the U.S. alone.

Worldwide, more than 177 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 3.8 million have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. The true numbers are certainly much higher, because of limited testing, different ways nations count the dead and deliberate under-reporting by some governments.
