US COVID-19 vaccination rate March 1, 2022

Question

With concerns over the Omicron variant rising precipitously around the world over Thanksgiving weekend 2021, there has been some speculation that the potentially more transmissible Omicron variant may influence unvaccinated Americans to change their risk calculus and get the jab.

According to a poll conducted in late October 2021, nearly two-thirds of unvaccinated Americans were at least concerned enough about COVID-19 to regularly wear a mask.

This question asks:

What percentage of the US will be at least partially vaccinated against COVID-19 on March 1, 2022?

This question will resolve as the total percentage of fully and partially vaccinated people according to Our World In Data's Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccinations tracker for the date of March 1, 2022.
