Some States Vaccinate COVID Faster Than Others, Here’s How New York Stacks Up – fr

The Biden administration has announced a target goal of delivering at least one dose of vaccination to 70% of American adults by July 4. Whether this timeline is achievable or not remains to be seen. Currently, 131,078,608 people have been fully vaccinated, or 40.1% of the U.S. population.
So far, states have largely managed their own immunization coordination efforts – and some have proven to be more effective than others. In New York City, 45.2% of the population is fully vaccinated, which is higher than the US average.

While New York City does a better job of immunizing its people than other states, there appears to be room for improvement. As of May 25, New York has received approximately 22,210,800 vaccinations and administered approximately 85.6% of those doses.

As the virus mutates and new variants spread, it is essential to vaccinate the population as quickly as possible. In total, there had been 2,093,168 confirmed cases of the virus in New York City as of May 25 – or 10,711 per 100,000 people. For context, there have been 10,025 known infections per 100,000 people nationwide.

All COVID-19 and immunization data used in this article is current as of May 25, 2021.
