Good news! As of today, 50% of US adults are fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 vaccine. This number was less than 2% back at the end of January.
There are also another 70 million vaccine doses on their way to vaccine sites and pharmacies across the country right now.
In addition to the vaccinated adults, almost 5 million adolescents have also received at least one dose of the vaccine.
Nine of the 50 states have gotten the vaccine to 70% of their adult population.
The lowest overall vaccination rates in the U.S. are in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Arkansas. The highest rates are in Vermont, Massachusetts, Hawaii and Connecticut.
