Pace of Vaccinations must increase again
Vaccination rates are un-moved, stuck at the same levels we saw when they were in low supply at the beginning of the rollout.
48.8% of the US population are fully vaccinated, while 56.4% have received at least one vaccine dose.
Lowest vaccination rates are in MS, LA, ID, WY and AL.
Highest vaccination rates are in VT, MA, HI, CT and ME.
Average rate of vaccination is still low. The U.S. is now distributing less than 500k doses per day, compared to 3.3 million at the peak in April.
