US Hits 70% Vaccination Target

What Happened:

  • On Monday, the United States achieved President Biden's goal of 70% of adults having taken at least one Covid-19 vaccination shot. The original goal was to hit this target by July 4th.

  • The benchmark, which was established in the hopes of achieving herd immunity, comes amidst another surge of Covid-19 cases as the Delta variant is inundating hospitals with new patients and causing politicians to rethink mask mandates.

  • On Saturday, Florida reached an all time record for new cases in a single day and Louisiana recently reinstated mandatory mask usage when indoors (whether people are vaccinated or not).

  • New cases in the United States have increased by 600% over the last month generating nearly 80,000 new cases per day. States with low vaccination rates tend to be the hardest hit.
