More than half of Americans have received a COVID vaccine. See how your state is doing
America’s vaccine rollout is going into full gear—or at least that’s the intention behind President Biden announcing today a “National Month of Action,” an all-out sprint to get 70% of U.S. adults at least partially vaccinated against COVID by July 4.
The heightened effort to reach the unvaccinated includes free childcare, canvassing door-to-door, giving COVID shots at Black-owned barber shops and salons, a competition between mayors for the biggest city-wide increase in vaccination rates, and lots of get-your-COVID shot swag like free Major League baseball tickets.
With new cases and deaths from coronavirus declining, the country is nearing the administration’s 70% goal; 62.9% of U.S. adults have received at least one vaccine dose. But progress has been slowing in recent weeks. As of June 2, 168.7 million Americans—50.8% of the total population—had received at least one COVID shot, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s up from 165.1 million people a week ago. Over 136 million Americans are now fully vaccinated, including 74.9% of seniors, 51.9% of adults, and 41% of the U.S. population.
In total, the U.S. has administered roughly 297 million COVID shots, the vast majority of which were either Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines. About 10.9 million Americans have so far received the single-shot vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson.
The progress of the vaccine rollout varies greatly across the country. Vermont has already reached 70.7% of its population with at least one vaccine dose; a handful of other states, including Hawaii and some in the Northeast, have reached more than 60%. (Twelve states have already achieved Biden’s goal of vaccinating 70% of their adult populations.)
Meanwhile, a handful of states in the Southeast as well as Idaho and Wyoming have yet to reach 40% of residents. Mississippi has the furthest to go with only 34.3% of its population having received one vaccine dose.
