Twelve U.S. states now have 70% of adult residents with at least one Covid vaccine shot, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data published Tuesday shows.

California and Maryland most recently reported crossing the milestone, joining Vermont, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Jersey, Rhode Island, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire.

President Joe Biden has set a goal to have one shot or more administered to 70% of those 18 and older by July 4. On Wednesday, he will speak about the state of the vaccination campaign and declare June as a national month of action to get more people vaccinated.
