The American Academy of Pediatrics, drawing on data posted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is tracking the progress in vaccinating U.S. children under age 18. The report will be updated every Friday here.

As of July 7, the AAP report finds that 8.5 million U.S. children under 18 have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This represents 45% of 16–17-year-olds and 32% of 12–15-year-olds. About 6.4 million children are fully vaccinated, representing 36% of 16–17-year-olds and 24% of 12–15-year-olds.

The trends indicate a substantial reduction in the uptake of COVID vaccines for children. The number of new vaccinations in a week dropped from a peak of about 1.6 million at the end of May (following approval of vaccine to children aged 12-15), to 333,000 the week ending July 7th, according to the report.

AAP recommends that all eligible teens ages 12 and older be vaccinated to prevent COVID-19.
