An additional 3.8 million people, or 1.1% of the population, have now received both doses.

The progress of the vaccination campaign varies increasingly from state to state, with the percentage of the population vaccinated ranging from 4.5% in Idaho and Missouri to 11.4% in Alaska, the state. the largest and least dense in America. West Virginia, which has been ahead of the crowd in administering vaccines for weeks, is the only other state to have vaccinated more than 9% of its population.

2.9 million doses have been administered in long-term care facilities thanks to the federal government’s partnership with private pharmacies, up from 1.7 million a week ago.
