The Five States Making the Fastest Progress Giving Covid Shots

West Virginia and the Dakotas lead the pack

In the first week since U.S. states started administering Covid-19 vaccines, some states are making more rapid progress than others in working through their allocations from the federal government. 

West Virginia has given 15,046 doses of Pfizer Inc.’s vaccine, representing almost all of the 16,575 doses it was allocated for the first week of allocations. That represents 0.84% of the state’s population, a better week-one start than anywhere else.
