Separately, as of August 23, 2021,153,225 persons or 35.6 percent of the population had received at least one dose of the vaccine. This represents an increase of 7,658 new vaccinations over last week’s numbers. Additionally, 61,567 or 14.3 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated, an increase of 5,237 more persons over last week’s 56,330.
