IMPORTANT: For "herd immunity" most experts believe we need 70% to 85% of the total population fully vaccinated (or already had COVID).  

KUDOS to the residents of the 4 states that have achieved 70% of total population fully vaccinated: Vermont at 70.8%, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Maine at 70.0% .

KUDOS also to the residents of the 11 states and D.C. that have achieved 60% of total population fully vaccinated: Massachusetts at 69.2%, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Washington, Oregon, Virginia, District of Columbia,  Colorado, and California at 60.7%.

The following 20 states have between 50% and 59.9% fully vaccinated: Pennsylvania at 59.9%, Minnesota, Hawaii, Delaware, Florida, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, South Dakota, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, Nevada, Alaska, Utah, North Carolina and Ohio at 51.5%.

Next up (total population, fully vaccinated according to CDC) are Montana at 49.9%, Indiana at 49.5%, Oklahoma at 49.5%, South Carolina at 49.4%, Missouri at 49.3%,  and Georgia at 47.6%.
