Map: State-by-state breakdown of vaccination rates as Biden takes over

Must read


President Joe Biden has made it clear that one of his top priorities is to accelerate the nationwide rollout of COVID vaccines, and he typed former FDA chief David Kessler to lead the effort. As they step into their roles, where is the US COVID vaccination campaign?

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 4.8% of the American population had received at least one dose of the vaccine until January 19, compared to 2.8%. A week ago. In total, about 15.7 million shots were administered out of the 31.2 million that had been distributed. Just over two million people have received the two doses of the vaccine.

Among states, Alaska has achieved the highest percentage of its population with the vaccine to date, with 7.6% of its citizens having received at least one dose. West Virginia, the leader last week, was the only other state where more than 7% of the population received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Alabama, Georgia and Nevada have the lowest rates, each with less than 3% of the population having received a dose of any of the COVID vaccines. Alabama, which is the state that has so far reached the smallest percentage of the population when it deployed, administered only 29% of the vaccine doses it received.

Most vaccines have so far been administered by states to their residents; only 1.7 million doses have been administered to Americans in long-term care facilities thanks to federal partnerships with pharmacies like CVS and Walgreens.
