WASHINGTON— Half of all adults in the U.S. have received at least one Covid-19 shot, the government announced Sunday, marking another milestone in the nation’s largest-ever vaccination campaign but leaving more work to do to convince skeptical Americans to roll up their sleeves.

Almost 130 million people 18 or older have received at least one dose of a vaccine, or 50.4 percent of the total adult population, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Almost 84 million adults, or about 32.5 percent of the population, have been fully vaccinated.

He recalled seeing a photo of someone in the Capitol mob holding a flag emblazoned with the OAN logo. “I was like, OK, that’s not good,” Mr. Golingan said. “That’s what happens when people listen to us.” (Mr. Golingan said he was fired on Monday, the day after this article was published online.)

In recent years, the topic of race in America has bubbled to the surface more than at any time since the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Many news articles talk of the difference between white Americans and “persons of color.” The implication is that people are either on one side of a tragically great divide or the other.

Conventional wisdom has absorbed the idea that the United States will become a “majority-minority” nation in the relatively near future. Somewhere around 2040, “persons of color” will outnumber whites. For some, that is a frightening thought. For others, it envisions a

Sleeping Too Little in Middle Age May Increase Dementia Risk, Study Finds

Could getting too little sleep increase your chances of developing dementia? For years, researchers have pondered this and other questions about how sleep relates to cognitive decline. Answers have been elusive because it is hard to know if insufficient sleep is a symptom of the brain changes that underlie dementia — or if it can actually help cause those changes. Now, a large new study reports some of the most persuasive findings yet to suggest that people who don’t get enough sleep in their

Hester Ford was either 115 or 116 years old depending on which census report was accurate.
