CDC: 70% of US adults vaccinated with at least 1 dose

Seventy percent of all adults in the United States have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, data published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday revealed.

The country reached the milestone almost a month after the Fourth of July goal set by the Biden administration. The new data also revealed the US is averaging about 660,000 vaccinations per day.

However, as vaccination rates widely vary across the country, ranging from just 50% in Mississippi to over 80% in states like Vermont and Connecticut, experts have warned that the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to pose public health. Meanwhile, the question of whether there will be a need for a third, booster shot of the available coronavirus shots remains.
