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 59.6%, Minnesota, Hawaii, Delaware, Florida, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, South Dakota, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, Alaska, Utah, North Carolina and Ohio at 51.3%.
Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Montana at 49.8%, Indiana at 49.4%, Missouri at 49.1%, Oklahoma at 49.1% and South Carolina at 49.1%.
