The number of coronavirus vaccinations administered in Massachusetts rose by 23,670 to 7,541,049, state officials reported Monday.

The number of new vaccinations was fewer than on Sunday, when 34,520 were reported.

The total number of shots administered amounted to 85.3 percent of the 8,842,020 doses shipped to providers in the state so far, the Department of Public Health said.

The total shots administered included 4,086,923 first shots and 3,212,716 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 241,410 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 3,454,126.

The department also reported 188 new confirmed coronavirus cases Monday, bringing the state’s total to 659,721. The department also reported two new confirmed coronavirus deaths, bringing the state’s total to 17,465.

The state said 9,804 people were estimated to have active cases of the potentially deadly virus, and 258 confirmed coronavirus patients were in the hospital.

It also reported that 17,102 more tests had been conducted for coronavirus. The total number of tests administered climbed to more than 22.6 million. New antigen tests had been completed for 2,173 people, bringing that total to more than 1.3 million.

The state reported that the seven-day average rate of positive tests, which is calculated from the total number of tests administered, was at 0.92 percent.

It said the rate would be 1.42 percent if the effect of college testing programs — in which asymptomatic people can be tested repeatedly in an effort to rapidly identify new cases — is factored out.
