In the midst of soaring instances and hospitalizations, the rate of Covid-19 vaccination continues to climb, which is an encouraging indicator.
On Saturday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded more than 700,000 jabs.
The seven-day average of dosages provided is currently 662,529 per day, the highest since July 7. 168.4 million people, or 49.6% of the US population, are completely vaccinated.
Twenty states have fully vaccinated more than half of their residents, including Washington, DC. The states with the lowest percentage of their population vaccinated are Alabama and Mississippi, which have 34% and 35% of their people vaccinated.
