More than one in five residents have been fully vaccinated in two states – New Mexico and Alaska – according to data published Tuesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In New Mexico, more than one third of the population has received at least one dose of vaccine.
Nationally, nearly one in seven people – about 45.5 million people – have been fully vaccinated, and more than a quarter of the population – nearly 84 million people – have received at least one dose of vaccine, CDC data shows.
The CDC reported that 128,217,029 total doses have been administered – about 78% of the 164,300,795 doses delivered.
That’s about 1.7 million more doses reported administered since yesterday, for a seven-day average of about 2.5 million doses per day.
Note: Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been given on the day reported.
