Maine Nears 70% Vaccination Level for Residents

PORTLAND, Maine — Maine is approaching getting 70% of its eligible residents fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, and the director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention says he sees that figure as more of a floor than a ceiling.

Dr. Nirav Shah says he considers it too early to tell how high the state’s final number could be, but he intends to push for more.

Maine has been one of the most successful states at getting vaccines to residents. State officials say about 65% of people age 12 and older are fully vaccinated, and the number is nearly 75% for people age 40 and older.

The state has recorded 858 deaths from COVID-19.


ATHENS – While the New Democracy government is easing health restrictions for rabid anti-vaxxers, those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may need a fourth shot in the autumn.
