Seventy percent of American adults have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, officials said Monday, reaching a goal President Joe Biden had hoped to reach a month ago.

As of Monday, more than 180.7 million people in the U.S.

ages 18 or older, or 70 percent, have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The 70 percent mark was reached with Covid-19 cases rising across the country, fueled by the more transmissible delta variant.

Cyrus Shahpar, announced the 70 percent figure on Twitter, calling it "Milestone Monday" and encouraging people to get vaccinated.

Edwards said the state is "in an unchecked COVID surge" and blamed Louisiana's low vaccination rate.

Around 37 percent of state residents are fully vaccinated, according to numbers compiled by NBC News.

Edwards said that Louisiana has the highest number of new cases per capita in the nation.
