Early US vaccination saved 140,000 lives and prevented 3 million infections

The United States was one of the first to launch a massive one: it began back in December 2020, and by August 2021 at least one of

components of the vaccine were received by about 70% of the population.

The authors of the new work analyzed the ratesvaccination and its impact on the US population: They looked at data from statistical offices of all states from the end of December 2020 to May 2021 and compared this data with the vaccination rate of the population in these regions of the United States.

As a result, it turned out that early vaccinationprevented about three million cases of COVID-19 infection and slept from the deaths of about 140 thousand Americans. The greatest effect of vaccination was observed in New York, and the least of all it affected the epidemiological situation in Hawaii.

Our research highlights incredible successfirst months of mass vaccination of the population in the United States. The information we have collected confirms the effectiveness of measures aimed at maximizing the population's access to vaccines.
