Montana had administered 76,500 COVID-19 vaccine doses by Saturday, according to a social media update from Gov. Greg Gianforte. Gianforte also announced that 14,525 Montanans had been fully immunized by vaccination.
That's up slightly on both fronts from numbers reported last Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC showed Montana having administered 72,544 doses with 13,235 people having received two or more doses.
Montana has had 119,500 doses distributed, or 11,181 per 100,000 population. On a per 100,000 population basis 6,788 doses have been administered. For first doses 5,547 people per 100,000 population have received first doses and 1,238 people per 100,000 population have received a second dose.
Montana has totaled 91,652 COVID-19 cases. Of those people infected 85,881 are considered recovered, meaning they meet the CDC guidelines for a person with COVID-19 to be released from isolation. That does not necessarily mean a person is no longer experiencing symptoms or other health effects related to illness.
Another 4,933 tests were completed by Sunday. The statewide testing total reached 911,686 with the most recent round of testing.
