Welcome To the HANA-I Covid-19 Vaccine Information Page
What is already known about COVID-19?
The U.S. COVID-19 vaccination program initially prioritized groups at highest risk for COVID-19 hospitalization and death; by April 19, 2021, eligibility expanded to all persons aged ≥16 years.
By May 22, 2021, 57.0% of U.S. adults aged ≥18 years had received ≥1 vaccine dose; coverage was lower and increased more slowly over time among younger adults. If the current rate of vaccination continues through August, coverage among young adults will remain substantially lower than among older adults.
What are the implications for public health practice?
Efforts to improve vaccination coverage are needed, especially among younger adults, to reduce COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Source: www.cdc.gov
