The U.S. COVID-19 Vaccination Program has helped avert an estimated 35.9 million infections, 10.3 million hospitalizations and 1.1 million deaths as of Nov. 30, according to an analysis released this week by the Commonwealth Fund. Health care providers enrolled in the federal program through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention administer all COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. 

According to a survey released today by the CDC, U.S. adults are more likely to have confidence in the safety of COVID-19 vaccines and to get vaccinated if their health care provider recommends it.
