January Almost Gone, & Covid-19 Vaccinations Continue At Slow Pace; CA & AZ Among The Worst States

More than a dozen states are still playing catch up when it comes to coronavirus vaccines.

The CDC says 16 states have yet to administer at least 50 percent of the Covid-19 vaccines doses  they’ve received from the federal government.

Those include Arizona, California, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

But, the CDC notes the country as a whole has administered roughly 54 percent of the more than 48-million distributed doses.

About four-point-three million Americans have been given both shots.
