This Is How Close Your State Is to Being Fully Vaccinated, Data Shows

CDC data shows how much of your state's population has gotten the COVID shot.

Earlier in 2021, with the rollout of effective COVID vaccines, it felt like there was light at the end of the tunnel in regards to the pandemic—and then numbers began to move rapidly in the wrong direction. While the situation had been steadily improving as summer transitioned to fall, the colder weather forced people inside and the immunity from vaccination appeared to decline over time. The approval of vaccines for children along with booster shots to get vaccinated adults to their early levels of protection against COVID will go a long way toward ending the pandemic in the U.S., but as it stands, the highly infectious Delta variant is far from contained, and it remains of particular risk to unvaccinated people. And despite some massive strides, many states are much further from being fully vaccinated than others, based on the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

As of Nov. 19, the CDC says that close to 196 million people in the United States have been fully vaccinated, which is nearly 59 percent of the country's total population, but still nowhere close to what it would take to reach herd immunity. If you're wondering how the numbers look where you live, read on to discover how close your state is to being fully vaccinated, presented here from the least to most vaccinated, as collected by Becker's Hospital Review.
