Since the U.S. COVID-19 Vaccination Program began on December 14, 2020, about 336 million vaccine doses have been administered. The CDC's data indicates 79.3% of seniors (65+) are fully vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Moreover, a recent CDC report found that COVID-19 vaccination coverage was lower in rural counties than urban counties. As a result, efforts are underway to raise awareness about COVID-19 vaccines and make vaccines more accessible to residents of rural communities, stated the CDC.
