Nationally, just over 55% of the US population is fully vaccinated and sixteen states have yet to vaccinate more than half of their residents. According to CNN, “the seven-day average rate of people getting their first shot is 231,695, 31% less than last week, almost half — 47% — less than a month earlier — and a far cry from the millions a day the country saw in April.” and that “almost 25% of the eligible population — about 70 million people — are not vaccinated”.
