More Louisiana residents are getting the coronavirus shot as cases start spiking.

The Louisiana Department of Health reported almost 42% of residents have received at least one dose, while almost 37% are fully vaccinated.

Inoculation numbers have slowly started rising this month but are still below the 75% needed to start herd immunity.

The delta variant of COVID-19 is being blamed for the latest spike in cases.

LDH reported 4,413 additional coronavirus cases Thursday with 20 new deaths.

Hospitalizations increased to 1,620 statewide with 162 patients on ventilators.
