? Increasing 7 day average week-over-week for Cases, Hospitalized, and Deaths
? 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 13 states and D.C. have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Oregon at 58.5%, District of Columbia, Virginia, Colorado, Minnesota, California, Hawaii, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan at 50.8%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are South Dakota at 49.6%, Kentucky at 49.1%, Arizona at 49.0%, Kansas at 48.8%, Ohio at 48.8%, Nevada at 48.3%, Utah at 48.1%, Texas at 48.1% and Alaska at 47.5%.
