Just four months after the start of coronavirus vaccine inoculations in December of last year, the United States reached an important milestone on Thursday: Over 25% – 25.6% to be exact – of adults 18 years of age or older have been fully vaccinated.

The news represents an increase of four percentage points in one week, representing 11.65 million people.

Of equal import, over 112 million Americans – or one third of the population and 43.2% of adults – have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That is a dramatic increase from just one week ago, April 1, at which point only 97.5 million Americans had received at least one dose.

The majority of Americans have received either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, both of which require two doses, while under ten million Americans have receive the one-dose Johnson & Johnson Jannsen vaccine.  The pace has proceeded over the past ten days at over three million people per day.

Out of the 50 U.S. states, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Connecticut lead the country in vaccinations with 45%, 42%, and 41% of their respective populations having received one dose and 22%, 27%, and 25% having received both doses.

The two states in last place are Alabama and Mississippi, both with 27% of their populations having received one dose of vaccine and with 16% and 18% of their respective populations having received both doses, and are followed by the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, with 26% and 24% of their respective populations having received one dose, and 18% and 14% having received both.
