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 22 states have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Minnesota at 59.9%, Delaware, Hawaii, Florida, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, South Dakota, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, Alaska, Utah, North Carolina, Ohio, Montana, Oklahoma, and South Carolina at 50.1%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Indiana at 49.9%, Missouri at 49.8%, Georgia at 48.2%, and Arkansas at 48.1%.
