More than 30 percent of the adult population, or about 78.5 million people, are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to new data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the CDC, 48 percent of adults and 80 percent of seniors who are at risk have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
Sixty-four percent of the elderly are fully vaccinated.
The agency also reported 5,800 cases of infection among vaccinated people.
“All available vaccines have proven effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death,” the agency said in a statement.
At the same time, the CDC expects that thousands of more cases of infection among vaccinated people will be registered.
