Over the weekend, Delaware crossed the 150,000 marks in vaccinations for Covid-19
Figures from the Delaware Vaccination Tracker are as follows:
Doses delivered to Delaware
The state tracker does not list second doses that have been administered.
However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination date tracker Monday listed about 34,000 people receiving both doses in the First State.
The state has been focusing on second doses as it struggles with limited supplies that limit mass vaccinations.
According to an NPR tracker, Delaware has slipped to 14th place among the 50 states and the District of Columbia after being in the top 10 for a time.
Figures on vaccinations can lag by days. The vaccine is also being delivered to multiple locations, including pharmacies, making tracking doses more difficult.
The state is making headway but still faces a long waiting list in vaccinating the Phase 1B category, which includes about 200,00 over 65 and some essential workers.
The Biden Administration says more doses are going to states. Delaware did receive an increase last week but still gets fewer than 25,000 doses during seven-day periods.
Delaware and the U.S. are faring better than many nations. Canada has vaccinated less than 2.5 percent of its population.
Despite ordering hundreds of millions of doses for its small population, the northern neighbor has been hammered by European vaccine producers not delivering amounts. There has also been criticism of the government’s actions.
