The number of coronavirus vaccinations administered in Massachusetts rose by 72,047 to 3,904,179, state officials reported Sunday.

Updates on coronavirus cases, deaths, and other metrics were not released on Easter Sunday. That data will be included in Monday’s report, according to the state COVID-19 dashboard.

On Saturday, the state reported 2,263 new confirmed coronavirus cases, bringing the state’s total to 605,055. The department also reported 30 new confirmed coronavirus deaths, bringing the state’s total to 16,938.

The number of new vaccinations reported Sunday was smaller than on Saturday, when 97,690 were reported.

The total number of shots administered amounted to 85.2 percent of the 4,582,670 doses shipped to providers in the state so far, the Department of Public Health said.


The total shots administered included 2,425,659 first shots and 1,378,780 second shots. Those who have gotten their second shot of the currently approved two-dose vaccines are considered fully vaccinated.

The state reported a total of 99,740 people who have received Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine.

The number of people fully vaccinated — with either two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson — rose to 1,478,520.
