BOISE, Idaho — Central District Health (CDH) is reporting the combined vaccine uptake for the four counties in its jurisdiction is up 59%. 227,750 COVID-19 vaccines have been allocated to Ada, Boise, Elmore and Valley Counties to date.

In Idaho, more than 53% of the state's 18 and older population have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

The United States reached a major vaccination milestone Monday with 70% of adults having at least one vaccine dose. The milestone was reached more than a month after President Joe Biden’s 4th of July goal.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare is holding a media briefing about COVID-19 in Idaho Wednesday afternoon. Gov. Brad Little will offer opening remarks and then IDHW officials will speak and answer questions from the media.
