Nine states now have 70% of adult residents with at least one vaccine vaccine, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Sunday, as the number of Covid cases and deaths nationwide has fallen further.
The seven-day average of new infections is around 25,300 per day Sunday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, down 24% from a week ago. The daily death toll in the country, which is currently nearly 550 a day, is also falling.

United States share of the vaccinated population

About 49% of the U.S. population has at least one or more vaccines, according to the CDC, with 39% fully vaccinated.

Among people aged 18 and over nationwide, 61% are at least partially vaccinated. President Joe Biden has set a goal of increasing that number to 70% by July 4.

Progress on immunization varies across the country. On Sunday, New Mexico became the ninth state to report that 70% of adult residents with at least one shot, joining Vermont, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Jersey and Rhode Island.

That figure is below 50% in ten states, including Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Wyoming, all of which are below 47%.

The White House’s partnership with ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft begins Monday. Through this partnership, users can flag down free trips to and from vaccination sites in an effort to achieve the President’s goal.
