Less than half of the U.S. population is “fully vaccinated,” according to data posted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on June 11.
According to the federal health agency, 141,583,252 million people in the United States are “fully vaccinated,” representing 42.6 percent of the population. The data shows 172,423,605 million receiving at least one dose of a vaccine, representing 51.9 percent of the population.
Still, this number falls short of the Biden administration’s goal to have 70 percent of the population receiving at least one dose of the vaccine by the Fourth of July. However, the sprint continues, with the CDC continuing to urge Americans to get vaccinated.
