Twelve US states now have 70% of adult residents with at least one injection of the Covid vaccine, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Tuesday.
California and Maryland recently said they crossed the mark, joining Vermont, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Jersey, Rhode Island, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.
President Joe Biden has set a goal of administering one or more vaccine to 70% of those 18 and over by July 4. On Wednesday, he will talk about the status of the vaccination campaign and declare June as the national month of action to get more people vaccinated.
The seven-day average of daily infections in the United States remained below 20,000 for the second day in a row on Tuesday, although many states did not release data during the Memorial Day holiday and may still catch up on reports.
U.S. share of population vaccinated
CDC data shows that about 51% of Americans have received at least one dose and about 41% are fully immunized.
Of those aged 18 and over, about 63% received one or more doses. President Joe Biden has set a target of reaching 70% by July 4.
American vaccines administered
The United States is reporting an average of 1.2 million vaccinations per day over the past week, according to the CDC.
Cyrus Shahpar, White House Data Director on Covid-19 wrote in a tweet Tuesday that data reports were limited during the bank holiday weekend and will be completed over the next few days.
Covid case in the United States
The latest seven-day average of Covid cases in the United States is 17,289, according to data from Hopkins. Many states did not report data on Remembrance Day and cases may increase in the coming days to reflect the clearance of backlogs.
Before the holiday weekend, the number of cases had been on a downward trajectory for weeks.
Covid Deaths in the United States
Also affected by the slowdown in holiday weekend reports, the current seven-day average of Covid deaths in the United States is 589.
The latest trend in the daily death toll in the United States is further complicated by data audits performed by state health departments. In these scenarios, a batch of previously unreported cases or death data will be assigned to a single day, even if they occurred before the assigned date. Last week, Oklahoma and Maryland each added hundreds of deaths to their pandemic totals.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced on Tuesday that an audit had revealed 260 new Covid deaths, according to Associated Press, which are currently all attributed to June 1 in the Hopkins data.
