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: Virginia at 59.7%, District of Columbia, Colorado, California, Minnesota, Hawaii, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, South Dakota, Kentucky, Arizona, Kansas and Texas at 50.3%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Nevada at 49.9%, Ohio at 49.7%, Utah at 49.5%. Alaska at 49.2% and North Carolina 48.8%.
