Delaware will end the weekend with with more than 41 and a half percent of its population receiving at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine.

The calculation comes from the Covid Mapping Project. The percentage is somewhat higher than 41 since there are delays in recording vaccinations.

The percentage of vaccinations is closely watched by the hospitality and other sectors of the business community, which sees that figure as key to a sustained recovery.

Delaware ranks higher than the national average in the percentage of residents getting at least one shot and slightly above the national average in the percentage of those getting both doses.

It was announced on Monday that half of all adults in the U.S. have received at least one dose of vaccine.

When it comes to the percentage of vaccine going into the arms of residents, Delaware ranks 28th, according to Becker’s Hospital Review. That is slightly above the national average, but below neighboring states, New Jersey in particular.

More than one-in-five Delawareans have received both doses of either Moderna Pfizer.

Vaccinations of the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine remain on hold, due to rare cases of blood clots among women. Delaware has about 25,000 doses of the vaccine in its inventory that could be administered if the pause in vaccinations ends.

Delaware does not list vaccinations on a county by county basis, unlike its more heavily populated neighbors, since the First State does not have county health departments. The map does offer county by county statistics for Maryland and other states.

Delaware’s latest COVID-19 vaccination statistics can be found under the Vaccine Tracker dashboard at de.gov/healthycommunity.
