Gov. Phil Murphy is saying it's unvaccinated individuals who are feeding the rapid increase in the rate of transmission, as new COVID-19 cases are on the rise.
"I cannot put it any more succinctly: The vaccines work,” says Gov. Murphy. “They are proving more than 99.9% effective in preventing people from contracting the virus, more than 99.99% effective in keeping people out of the hospital, and more than 99.999% effective in keeping people out of the morgue."

Over 5.1 million people who live, work, or study in the state are now fully vaccinated.
