As COVID-19 deaths continue to rise, with the national toll surpassing 413,000, January is on track to become the deadliest month of the pandemic so far - and too many Americans still aren't sure how to get vaccinated.
A new report from the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that six in 10 older Americans still don't know where or when they can get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Those who do have appointments are finding scenes where many are either standing in line or waiting in their cars for hours at a time.
Less than 1% of the U.S. population has been fully vaccinated.
The most common issue is the diminishing supply.
The good news is that the CDC reported on Friday about 1.6 million vaccines were given in 24 hours - the biggest one-day increase yet.
It bodes well for the Biden administration, which is promising 1 million vaccines every day for 100 days.
Dr. Anthony Fauci also said this week that he believes somewhere between 70 and 85% of American adults will be vaccinated by the end of the summer.
