Here’s the latest data on vaccination efforts in the US, published Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- Fully vaccinated: 62.4% of the total US population (all ages), about 207 million people
- In four states, less than half of the population is fully vaccinated: Alabama, Idaho, Mississippi and Wyoming
- In five states, at least three-quarters of the population is fully vaccinated: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont
- Not vaccinated: at least 21.3% of the eligible population (age 5+) has not received any dose of Covid-19 vaccine, at least 66 million people
- Current pace of vaccinations (7-day average): 1,072,127 doses are being administered each day
- Most doses being administered – about 597,000 – are booster doses.
- Only about 304,000 people are initiating vaccination each day.
- About 73 million people have received a booster dose
- About 23% of the total US population is now fully vaccinated and boosted
- The pace of booster dose administration ticked up amid the Omicron variant’s early initial spread but has since trailed off.
Note: CDC data on Covid-19 vaccinations are estimates. The agency notes that data on people who are fully vaccinated and those with a booster dose may be underestimated, while data on people with at least one dose may be overestimated.
