Vermont has the nation’s highest COVID-19 vaccination rate, but daily cases in the state have surpassed their all-time high from January, the New York Times reported.

September was Vermont’s second-worst month for COVID-19 deaths and the state recorded eight deaths in one day, the worst on record.

Average deaths and hospitalizations, however, have remained slightly lower than their peak levels last winter.

Seventy-eight percent of Vermont’s entire population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 shot, and 70% has been fully inoculated.

When excluding children younger than 12, the percentage of those who have received both doses rises to 79%. Eighty-eight percent have received at least one shot.

Nearly 100% of seniors aged 65 years and older have taken one shot while 96% have taken both doses.

The Vermont Health Department and State Epidemiologist Patsy Kelso said that vaccinated Vermonters constituted four-in-ten new COVID-19 cases.

Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, promised to lift the Vermont’s emergency restrictions when at least 80% of the state’s citizen had received one dose of a COVID-19 shot.

“We can’t be in a perpetual state of emergency,” he said.

He has not indicated that he plans to reimpose emergency orders.
