CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia officials say President Joe Biden is making good on his pledge to increase vaccine supplies with a 16% bump in first doses received by the Mountain State this week.

State spokesman Lawrence Messina said the shipment of first doses from the federal government increased by 3,700 this week, up to 27,300 doses from Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech.

Nearly 11% of West Virginia’s 1.78 million population has received at least one dose.

About 4% are fully vaccinated, leading the 50 states.
