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 20 states have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Wisconsin at 58.7%, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, South Dakota, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, Alaska, Utah, North Carolina, Ohio, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Indiana, and Missouri at 50.1%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Georgia at 48.6%, Arkansas at 48.4%, Louisiana at 48.0%, and Tennessee at 48.0%.
