BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – Massachusetts is one of only three states to have two-thirds of its population fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) most recent data had updated vaccination numbers, placing the Commonwealth alongside Vermont and Connecticut as the only states to have two-thirds of their population vaccinated.
Coincidently, all three states had the lowest number of Covid cases per capita over the past week.
On September 10, Massachusetts reported 1,726 new confirmed cases of the virus out of more than 87,000 tests. The seven-day average positivity rate was 2.52%.
The state’s most recent Daily Covid-19 Vaccine Report also calculated that over 4.5 million residents in the Bay State were vaccinated by September 10.
