That’s an increase of nearly 30,000 people. State health department data shows more than 119,000 people age 16 and older received a shot from May 13 to May 19.

That’s up from roughly 89,000 during the previous seven-day period from May 6 to May 12.

The analysis did not include doses received by children ages 12 to 15, who first became eligible for vaccinations the day the lottery was announced.
