Half of all adults in the United States have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Sunday.

This means almost 130 million people aged 18 or older have received at least one dose.

The U.S. passed the 50 percent mark just a day after the global death toll from the coronavirus topped a staggering 3 million, based on totals compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

The CDC said nearly 84 million adults or about 32.5 percent of the population have been fully vaccinated.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's top infectious disease expert, said the government will likely move to resume using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week.

Appearing on a number of Sunday news shows, Fauci said he expects a decision when advisers to the CDC meet Friday to discuss the pause in the single-dose vaccine.

The J&J jab was temporarily suspended following recommendations from health regulators amid reports of suspected links to unusual blood clots.
