IMPORTANT: For “herd immunity” most experts believe we need 70% to 85% of the total population fully vaccinated (or already had COVID).
The following 18 states and D.C. have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Oregon at 59.6%, District of Columbia, Virginia, Colorado, Minnesota, California, Hawaii, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, South Dakota, Kentucky, Arizona and Kansas at 50.0%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Texas at 49.8%, Nevada at 49.6%, Ohio at 49.4%, Utah at 49.2%, Alaska at 48.8% and North Carolina at 48.4%.
