March 27 COVID-19 Vaccinations, New Cases, Hospitalizations

Note1: There is growing concern about the UK, South African, and Brazilian variants. The UK and South African variants are causing a surge in cases in Michigan, New Jersey and New York.

Notes: I’ve been posting this data daily for over a year. I’ll stop once 70% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose of vaccine, new cases are under 5,000 per day, and hospitalizations below 3,000.

According to the CDC, 140.2 million doses have been administered. 19.4% of the population over 18 is fully vaccinated, and 35.4% of the population over 18 has had at least one dose.
