IMPORTANT: For “herd immunity” most experts believe we need 70% to 85% of the total population fully vaccinated (or already had COVID). Note: COVID will probably stay endemic (at least for some time).
The following 19 states have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Wisconsin at 59.1%, Nebraska, Iowa, Utah, Michigan, Texas, Kansas, Arizona, Nevada, South Dakota, North Carolina, Alaska, Ohio, Kentucky, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Missouri and Indiana at 50.3%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Tennessee at 49.1%, Georgia at 49.1%, Arkansas at 48.8%, Louisiana at 48.4% and North Dakota at 48.3%.
