Is your state behind in giving COVID-19 vaccines? Check out the progress made by your state to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. Sooner or later all states will have the necessary amount of vaccines, however today there seem to be huge differences.
So far, about 15.4 million doses have shipped throughout the country. That’s a very small number compared to the 20 million doses U.S. officials had promised to distribute by the end of 2020. Let's hope 2021 brings more success in the vaccination campaign.
However, health experts are more concerned with the delay in COVID-19 vaccinations. Only about 4.5 million people have received their first dose as of Tuesday, the CDC reports. That means just 30% of available doses have been used.
While some states have been more successful in overcoming the obstacles to vaccinate their residents with available doses, other states seem to be falling behind. Check the list of the states left behind.
