Colorado reached a milestone this week with 75% of adults receiving at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Polis said. 

Currently, the state has 796 COVID-19 hospitalizations, and most of the hospitalized population are adults who are not vaccinated, according to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE). State data shows that the hospitalization rate of unvaccinated patients is 7-times higher than that of vaccinated patients.

During a news conference last week, Polis urged everyone to be careful as COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state continue to climb.
