IMPORTANT: For “herd immunity” most experts believe we need 70% to 85% of the total population fully vaccinated (or already had COVID).
The following 21 states have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: California at 59.7%, Minnesota, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Florida, Wisconsin, Texas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, South Dakota, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, Alaska, Utah, North Carolina and Ohio at 50.8%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Montana at 49.0%, Indiana at 48.9%, Missouri at 48.5% and Oklahoma at 48.3%.
