Maryland Says 100% of COVID Deaths in June Were Unvaccinated Individuals

100% of COVID-19-related deaths in Maryland during the month of June occurred in individuals that were unvaccinated, according to Michael Ricci, communications director for Gov. Larry Hogan. 

Ricci also reported that 95% of new cases of COVID-19 and 93% of hospitalizations in Maryland occurred in individuals that were unvaccinated.

According to Gov. Larry Hogan, Maryland achieved a significant milestone of vaccinating 75% of adults by the Fourth of July, “outpacing the nation and many other states.” 

Across the United States, more than 99% of COVID-19-related deaths in June were among the unvaccinated, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci. Approximately 0.8% of deaths are vaccinated individuals. 

As of July 4, 67.1% of U.S. adults received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and 47.4%  of the population is fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although this number has continued to increase over the past few months, the country fell short of achieving President Joe Biden’s goal of having 70% of the population vaccinated by the Fourth of July.
