CDC adds data on 5-11 vaccinations: The main vaccinations page on the CDC’s COVID-19 dashboard now includes vaccination rates for all U.S. residents ages 5 and older, in addition to all the previous categories (12 and older, 18 and older, 65 and older). These rates are available by dose and by state. Plus, the CDC has added an age 5-11 category to its demographic vaccination trends page. Notably, age 5-11 data haven’t been added to the Community Profile Reports yet, but I expect this will happen in the next couple of weeks.
