PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The State of Pennsylvania has reached a milestone statistic in the effort to get its citizens vaccinated against COVID-19.
Gov. Tom Wolf said Wednesday that 70% of adults in Pennsylvania have been fully vaccinated, saying they "have accepted their responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19 and, most importantly, keep themselves and their loved ones safe."
"This milestone is critical to protect those not yet eligible for the vaccine, like our children under 12 years of age."
Government organizations, pharmacies, and other providers have given out 13,135,136 COVID-19 vaccine doses.
