The daily pace of new Covid-19 vaccinations in the US is the highest in about seven weeks, but 31.2% of eligible people in the US remain unvaccinated.
Here’s the latest data on vaccination efforts in the United States, published Monday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Fully vaccinated: 50.2% of the total US population (all ages)
- Not vaccinated: 31.2% of the eligible population (12+)
- Current pace of vaccinations (7-day average): 486,332 people are initiating vaccination each day.
This is the highest average daily pace in about seven weeks, since June 18. It is a 10% increase over last week’s pace. An average of 715,547 doses is being administered each day.
22 states have fully vaccinated more than half of their residents: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, as well as Washington, D.C.
Nebraska is the latest state to cross this threshold. Vermont leads the nation with 68% of residents fully vaccinated. Alabama is the only state to have fully vaccinated less than 35% of residents.
