? Goal met.
IMPORTANT: For “herd immunity” most experts believe we need 70% to 85% of the total population fully vaccinated (or already had COVID).
The following 20 states have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Pennsylvania at 59.2%, Minnesota, Hawaii, Delaware, Florida, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, South Dakota, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, Alaska, Utah, North Carolina and Ohio at 51.1%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Montana at 49.4%, Indiana at 49.2%, Missouri at 49.0%, Oklahoma at 48.9% and South Carolina at 48.8%.
