MAINE, USA — The percentage of Maine teenagers and 12-year-olds who have had at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine has exceeded 50%.
Maine has been ahead of most of the country in vaccinating residents for COVID-19.
The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that about 51% of the state’s 12- to 19-year-old residents have had at least one dose, and about 47% have had a final dose.
More than two-thirds of Maine’s population that is old enough to receive a coronavirus vaccine has received a final dose. That is one of the highest percentages in the country.
