The number of coronavirus vaccinations administered in Massachusetts rose by 19,641 to 8,115,584, state officials reported Monday.

The number of new vaccinations was fewer than on Sunday, when 34,665 were reported.

The total number of shots administered amounted to 86.8 percent of the 9,345,960 doses shipped to providers in the state so far, the Department of Public Health said.

The total shots administered included 4,266,137 first shots and 3,591,640 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 257,807 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 3,849,447.

The department, in a separate report, reported 89 new confirmed coronavirus cases Monday, bringing the state’s total to 662,243. The department also reported four new confirmed coronavirus deaths, bringing the state’s total to 17,552.

The DPH said 4,195 people were estimated to have active cases of the potentially deadly virus, and 181 confirmed coronavirus patients were in the hospital.

The DPH also reported that 16,421 more tests had been conducted for coronavirus. The total number of tests administered climbed to more than 23.1 million. New antigen tests had been completed for 1,374 people, bringing that total to 1,353,221.

The DPH reported that the seven-day average rate of positive tests, which is calculated from the total number of tests administered, was at .53 percent.

The department said the rate would be .75 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.

The state’s alarming second surge appears to be on the wane. Cases and other metrics have been generally heading downward. But public officials are concerned about a possible resurgence because of new coronavirus variants, and they’re asking people to continue taking precautions and to get vaccinated when it’s their turn.
