The United States has racked up by far the largest death toll of the pandemic, ahead of Brazil and India.
However, hospitalization among teenagers has increased as more easily transmitted virus variants began to spread, according to recent CDC data. And now's not the time to let our guard down.
Some 84% of staff in care homes for older adults in England have had at least one dose of vaccine, and nearly 69% have had both shots, according to NHS data. "The government supplies around 30,000 to 35,000 vaccine doses from central EPI Centre at Manga Mandi to CVC Expo Centre daily to cater to the people volunteering for vaccination in the next 24 hours", he said, adding that the arrival of people exceeded the number of vaccine doses on Tuesday, which caused the paucity of vaccines and confusion among the people. These eight states have an average vaccination rate per state of 43%, according to USA Today, which is well under the 70% goal set by President Biden for the nation by July 4.
"Once that happens, we will inch closer to opportunities where we can enjoy some leisurely everyday life".
The massive vaccination campaign has been pushed by USA health authorities since the authorization of the first vaccines in December, and peaked in April, with up to more than four million shots a day.
But the pace has slowed rapidly since then, and unvaccinated people remain vulnerable to the disease.
To date, 64% of the USA adult population has received one dose of the COVID vaccine, according to the CDC, with 43% of the eligible public fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
When invited, people are able to book at one of the 1,600 Vaccination Centre, pharmacy or general practice sites across the country that are available through the national booking service. By comparison, it had only taken one month for the country to go from 400,000 to 500,000 deaths.
The majority of states across the US have seen their positive COVID cases decrease as more Americans get vaccinated, but there are still a handful of states with infection rates on the rise.
