D.C. Now Has 70% of Adults With at Least One COVID Vaccine Dose: Report

D.C. has met President Biden’s national goal of giving 70% of the adult population at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine by July 4, with the city hitting the mark Monday.

“Monday just in: +1.32M doses reported administered over yesterday’s total,” tweeted White House COVID-19 data director Cyrus Shahpar, WTOP reported. “Congratulations to New York State and Washington, D.C. which just hit the milestone of 70% of adults with at least one dose. Nationally we are at 64.5% of adults with at least one dose.”

Nevertheless, health experts say the nation will likely fall short of meeting Biden’s goal as the rate of vaccinations have slowed in recent weeks.

Neighboring Maryland reached the 70% mark on Memorial Day, while Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, tweeted Virginia will likely surpass the benchmark this week, WTOP reported.
