Vermont is 1st State to Reach 80% Vaccination Mark

Vermont says 80% of its residents have now received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine — becoming the first state to reach that mark.

Gov. Phil Scott said Monday he has accordingly removed all coronavirus-related restrictions in his state, Axios reported.

Vermont has been the national leader in vaccination and cases have declined steadily there. As of June 14, Vermont’s 14-day change in cases had fallen by 34% and hospitalizations were down by 78%, the New York Times reported.

As of June 2, 12 states have at least 70% of their adults with at least one shot. So far, roughly 65% of U.S. adults have gotten at least one dose, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

However, it appears the country will miss President Biden’s goal of 70% of adults have received at least one vaccination by July 4. CNN reported nationally 1 million vaccines were being administered per day over the past week, significantly less than the peak average of 3.3 million per day in early April.
