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.

It had felt for some time that there was light at the end of the tunnel in regards to the COVID pandemic, and then numbers began to move rapidly in the wrong direction. Now, the situation is finally improving, with the hardest-hit states seeing their COVID cases on the decline, but the highly infectious Delta variant is far from contained, and the virus is of particular risk to unvaccinated people. Unfortunately, some 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 Oct. 5, the CDC says more than 186 million people in the United States have been fully vaccinated, which is 56 percent of the country's total population, but still not nearly enough 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 on Oct. 5.
