(WHTM) — According to a tweet by Governor Tom Wolf, more than 80% of Pennsylvania adults have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

To date, 63.43% of Pennsylvanians 18 years and older are fully vaccinated.

“The pandemic has been unpredictable and unsettling throughout the last 18 months, but Pennsylvania has remained steadfast in our vaccination efforts. As COVID-19 variants spread throughout the country, it is vitally important that partially vaccinated individuals receive their second dose and individuals who haven’t been vaccinated get the vaccine today,” Gov. Wolf said.

This announcement comes after the White House announced that 50% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated.

The vaccine milestone for Pennsylvania continues to show the progress the state is making with COVID-19 vaccinations. Last week, Pa. ranked fifth for vaccine distribution in the state.

This is a developing story. More updates on where Pa. stands in COVID-19 vaccinations are to come as more information is available.
