The U.S. has reached President Biden’s goal of at least partially vaccinating 70% of all adults against the coronavirus — but nearly a month after the July 4 target date.
The latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that roughly 181 million citizens 18 and older have now received at least one vaccine dose, with 157 million of them fully vaccinated.
Twenty U.S. states and territories, including D.C., Maryland and Virginia, have fully vaccinated more than half of their residents. The District, Maryland and Virginia are also among the 20 states that have reached the 70% of adults have at least had one vaccination shot threshold.
Alabama and Mississippi are the only states to have fully vaccinated less than 35% of their residents, CNN reported. Mississippi has the nation’s worst vaccination rate of adults receiving at least one dose, with 50%.
