The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published its latest report on vaccination efforts in the United States on Tuesday.
Here's a look at some key figures:
- About 211 million people in the US are fully vaccinated. That figure represents 63.5% of the nation's total population.
- All but three states have fully vaccinated at least half of their population. Those states are Wyoming, Alabama, and Mississippi.
- Six states have fully vaccinated at least 75% of their population: Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Hawaii.
- At least 61 million people — nearly 20% of the eligible (at least 5 years old) population — have not received any form of the Covid-19 vaccine.
- Nearly 85 million people have received a Covid-19 booster dose.
Based upon a review of the last seven days, on average more than one million vaccine doses are being administered each day, with the large bulk of those doses — nearly 50% — coming in the form of the booster. By contrast, only about 270,000 people are beginning a vaccine regimen each day.
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.
