About 45% of adults in the United States are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to data published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But in 15 states, more than half of adult residents are fully vaccinated. Those states are: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Mexico, New Jersey, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa.

In Mississippi, however, less than a third of adults are fully vaccinated, CDC data shows. Another nine states – largely concentrated in the South – have fully vaccinated less than 40% of their adult residents: Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Wyoming, South Carolina, Utah and West Virginia.

Nationally, nearly 59% of adults have received at least at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine, CDC data shows. But six states have already reached the Biden administration’s goal to vaccinated at least 70% of adults with at least one shot by July 4: Vermont, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine.

Overall, 264,680,844 total doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been administered – about 79% of the 337,089,765 doses delivered, according to CDC data.

That’s about 1.5 million more doses reported administered since Tuesday, for a seven-day average of about 2.2 million doses per day.

Note: Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been given on the day reported.
