Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Tuesday shows that 60% of American adults have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine.
The milestone comes about six weeks before July 4, the deadline for President Joe Biden’s latest vaccination target of ensuring that 70% of adults receive one or more dose.

The number of cases in the United States fell further on Tuesday, with the seven-day average of daily new cases now standing at around 31,200, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Share of the United States of the total vaccinated population

About 48% of the U.S. population has received one or more dose of a vaccine and 38% are fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.

Among people aged 18 and over, 60% are at least partially vaccinated, and in some places the figure is even higher. In seven states – Vermont, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine and New Jersey – more than 70% of adults have received at least one dose.

American vaccines administered

The country reported an average of 1.8 million vaccinations per day over the past week, according to federal data. That figure follows a mostly downward trend from its peak level of 3.4 million daily shots on April 13.

CDC director Dr Rochelle Walensky said on Tuesday that more than 600,000 children aged 12 to 15 – the most recent eligible age group – had received Covid vaccines last week.

Covid cases in the United States

The latest seven-day average of new daily Covid cases in the United States is 31,200, according to data from Hopkins. This is an 18% drop from the previous week. The country was reporting on average more than 71,000 cases per day about a month ago.

The number of cases has declined 5% or more in 40 states over the past week.

Covid Deaths in the United States

The United States is reporting 614 Covid deaths per day, based on a seven-day average of Hopkins data.

More than 587,000 total deaths have been reported in the United States since the start of the pandemic.
