Almost half of the the country is fully vaccinated, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Vaccination rates, however, are far below their mid-April peak of 3.3 million doses administered daily, on average.

When states will vaccinate 70% of adults at current rate

The United States reached President Biden’s target of getting at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine to 70 percent of adults just about a month after his goal of July 4. When the president set the goal May 4, more than 2 million vaccine doses were being given daily, 56 percent of adults had already received at least one shot, and the target seemed to be in easy reach. Vaccination rates fell to 1 million per day and in July fell further to around a half-million doses per day.

Several states and the District of Columbia have reached the 70 percent target, and more should follow soon. Many states, particularly in the South and Midwest, are still far from reaching the threshold. Georgia was not included in this analysis due to infrequent reporting to the CDC. Infections and hospitalizations have been rising in many places with low vaccination rates, a Post analysis found.

A look at vaccinations across the country

Vaccination rates vary enormously across states. A handful of New England states have fully vaccinated more than 60 percent of the residents, while several other states, mostly in the South, have fully vaccinated fewer than 40 percent (see table of all states below). The emergence of the delta variant has vastly increased the risk for unvaccinated people, and infections and hospitalizations have been rising in many places with low vaccination rates, a Post analysis found.

Note: The U.S. total includes doses provided to Republic of Palau, Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands, as US-affiliated Pacific Islands. The CDC is underreporting vaccinations in Utah by 100,000 people.

All adults have been eligible for the vaccine since April, and almost 17 million children, as young as 12, have been eligible for a coronavirus vaccine since May.

Public health and government leaders said that racial and ethnic equity would be critical in distributing vaccines, but data collection on the race of recipients has been poor.

These charts show the percent of the population in each racial or ethnic group that has received a vaccine so far. Alaskan Native and Native American populations have a higher rate of vaccination, which tribal leaders have attributed to their sovereignty and emphasis on prioritizing elders and their communities.

The risk of hospitalization and death from covid-19 rises with age, and vaccination rates have followed that pattern, with prioritization for people in nursing homes and for older Americans.

Methodology

The number of vaccines allocated to each state, the count of doses distributed and the count of doses administered are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Post is updating this page with details from states on how doses are being prioritized.

Doses are also being distributed to the Defense Department, State Department, Department of Veterans Affairs, Federal Bureau of Prisons, Department of Homeland Security and Indian Health Service. On Feb. 19, the CDC altered its reporting of doses being administered by the Department of Defense, Bureau of Prisons, Indian Health Service and Veteran’s Health Administration. The CDC added the shots given by those agencies to the states where the shots had been given. It didn’t change the national total, but it added two million shots to various state totals. The shots had been administered over two-and-a-half months, but they were all reported on Feb. 19, causing large one-day increases in Virginia, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas, Massachusetts, Connecticut and other states.
