Washington became the latest state to reach this threshold, joining California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.
Overall, more than 171 million people – 51.6% of the total US population – have received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine, and nearly 140 million people – 42.1% of the population – are fully vaccinated, CDC data shows.
Among the eligible population of those 12 and older, nearly half are fully vaccinated.
Nearly 303 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been reported administered, about 82% of the 371.5 million doses delivered. That’s more than 1.2 million more doses reported administered since Sunday, for a seven-day average of about 1 million doses per day.
Note: Data published by the CDC may be delayed, and doses may not have been administered on the day reported.

The results showed a political split: 76% of Democrats support showing vaccination status to return to work compared with 29% of Republicans, according to the poll, which was conducted June 4 to 7 and based on a nationally representative sample of 1,027 American adults.
The poll also found that a majority of Americans support requiring vaccination and proof of vaccination to travel or attend a large event.
Vaccination proof requirements were most strongly supported for travel, with 61% supporting for vacations at a hotel, resort or cruise ship, 64% for domestic flights and 67% for international flights. More than half – 56% – supported vaccination proof requirements for sporting events.
There was less support for requiring proof of vaccination for activities like dining at a restaurant and shopping at retail stores, where 53% and 57% respectively were opposed.
Vaccination requirements to go to a salon were supported by 49% of respondents.
This is coming as 66% of those who took part in the poll reported being vaccinated. 7% of respondents said that they remained likely to get a vaccine and another 7% said that they were not likely to, but were not hard opposed.
The number of respondents that said that they were not at all likely to get vaccinated – 19% – has stayed roughly
So far, only 13 states have met Biden’s goal of vaccinating 70% of adults with at least one vaccine dose by July 4
