In a race against the spread of more difficult-to-control coronavirus variants, the United States is making steady strides in introducing vaccines nationwide. As of Tuesday, January 26, 24.7 million people, or approximately 6% of the US population, had received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That number has increased from 15.2 million Americans a week ago. Another 3.8 million people, or 1.1% of the population, have now received both doses.
Vaccination advances are increasingly uneven across states. The vaccinated population ranges from 4.5% in Idaho and Missouri to 11.4% in Alaska, the largest and least densely populated state in America. West Virginia, which has outperformed others for weeks at the administration of shots, is the only other state to have vaccinated more than 9% of its population.
Thanks to the federal government’s partnership with private pharmacies, 2.9 million doses were administered in long-term care facilities, up from 1.7 million a week ago.
The country has administered 52.3% of the vaccines distributed. California, the most dosed state, administered 45.3% of its 5.3 million doses. Texas, Florida and New York, which also received large distributions, managed 57%, 48% and 63%, respectively.
