Americans Less Confident the Worst of the Pandemic is Over Entering Fall: Poll


...while COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing most infections, they are not 100% effective and breakthrough infections monitored by a CDC hospitalization rate tracking system.


According to CDC data, 62% of Americans age 12 and over are fully vaccinated as of Sept. 4. 64% of Americans age 18 and over are fully vaccinated (up from 55% in June). Americans over age 65 are fully vaccinated at a significantly higher rate (82% in September; up from 77% in June), indicating a promising way forward for the most at-risk population. 


Each state health department has a tailored plan for vaccination rollout in the U.S. Currently, the three vaccines authorized and recommended to prevent COVID-19 by the CDC are Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and Johnson & Johnson's Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.
