The state of Wyoming currently has had 12.5% of its population receive at least one dose of the vaccine, which is pretty good as it is higher than the national level.
The population that has received both doses in the state is 4.7%. It's important to remember that you need to wait at least 21 days to get the second dose, and try not to delay it more than six weeks. Currently, the state of Wyoming has administered 99,099 vaccines and distributed 122,200, which in other terms, means that 81% of the vaccines have been used.
Vermont has had 11.7% of its population vaccinated with at least one dose. This is lower than the percentage of Wyoming's population but at least about the same as the national level.
Vermont is doing a slightly better job than Wyoming in getting their second dose, as they have 5.4% of its population getting both doses so far. There have been 106,787 vaccines administered out of 138,025, accounting for 77% of doses used.
Alaska has the highest percentage of the population that has received at least one dose of the vaccine at an astonishing 17.3%. However, they aren't getting their second doses.
The percentage of the population with both doses in Alaska is just 7.8%. Out of 271,550 vaccines distributed, 183,831 have been administered. That's only 68% used out of what is available to the public.
South Dakota has 12.4% of the population with at least one vaccination dose. Again, that number is higher than the national estimate.
At 5.7%, the population that has had both doses is somewhat significant but there's still a lot of people waiting on their second dose. Out of 182,025, 160,223 vaccines have been used – a percentage of 88%.
Rhode Island has the lowest rate of vaccinated people among the population. Only 9.2% have been given at least one dose.
They aren't the worst, however, when it comes to getting the second dose, as 4.2% of the population have had both doses. But with only 141,155 vaccines used out of 228,650 vaccines distributed, it's clear Rhode Island is not taking the pandemic seriously enough.
The 11.5% of the population of Hawaii that has had their first dose of the COVID vaccine, has less than perfect numbers in terms of both doses.
Only 4.4% of Hawaiians have had both doses. It's important to remember that the shot is nearly twice as effective with both shots. Out of 310,600 shots distributed, the number of administered shots is 225,188, which translates to 73% shots used.
West Virginia has the second-highest percentage of its population getting at least their first vaccine dose – at 13.8%.
The percentage of people in West Virginia getting both doses is 7.7%. Out of 395,600 vaccines, an impressive 386,583 vaccines have been used for a total of 98% of vaccines used. This likely means that West Virginians just don’t have access to the second dose yet.
Idaho has had 9.8% of the population receive at least one dose, which is on the lower side but not as bad when it comes to both doses.
At 3.2%, Idaho has the second-lowest percentage of people who have had both shots administered. There have been 329,575 shots distributed and 242,295 of them have been used. In other words, 74% of the vaccines are used so far.
About 13.7% of New Mexico residents and non-residents are getting their first doses, making it the third-best at getting its population vaccinated.
At 6.1%, the population getting its second dose is less than half. However, this seems to have to do with availability as 419,882 out of 429,950 doses have been used, which is 98%.
Utah has the second-lowest percentage of people who are vaccinated with at least one dose at 9.6%.
It also has the third-lowest percentage of people vaccinated with both shots at 3.3%. However, among 579,700 vaccines, 510,267 have been used, or rather 88%. This means that the state is just not getting enough vaccines distributed.
Connecticut has administered vaccinations to 13.3% of its population, but the number of second doses is on the low side.
Out of the population, only 5.4% has had both doses. An impressive 854,725 vaccines have been distributed and 674,704 have been used, but that actually means only 79% of them have been used, so there's still a lot more work to do.
Alabama has administered their first doses to as much as 9.7% but are really struggling to get second doses to the people.
Alabama has the lowest percentage of the population with both doses, compared to any other state in the country. Just 2.8% of the population has been fully vaccinated for the virus. Of 965,550 vaccines, 612,254 have been used – which is 63%.
South Carolina has vaccinated 10.2% of residents with the first doses.
The 3.3% of residents and non-residents in South Carolina that have received both doses is one of the lowest percentages in the country. There were 891,650 vaccines distributed, and 704,186 have been used – accounting for 79% of the population.
The 11.4% of Minnesota's population has had their first vaccinations but the number of second doses is on the lower side.
Among the population of Minnesota, 4% have been given both doses. So far 1,132,350 vaccines have been distributed and 870,743 have been used. This is a total percentage of 77% used.
Massachusetts has vaccinated 11.9% with at least one dose of the COVID shot.
Also, among the population, 3.8% have received both shots. Having only used 72% of the vaccines distributed, Massachusetts still has much work to do with the supply it has. There were 1,502,925 vaccines distributed and 1,085,584 of them were used.
Illinois has vaccinated 11.2% of its population with their first dose but the percentage of the population with second doses is much lower.
Currently, only 3.2% of Illinois residents and non-residents have been inoculated with both doses. A total of 2,566,675 have been distributed, and 1,854,228, or rather, 72% have been used.
New York has so far vaccinated 10.3% of the population with the first doses.
Out of all residents and non-residents, 4.3% of them have received both doses. There are currently 3,969,050 vaccines available to New York but with only 2,925,186, there are over a million not being used yet, which means only 74% of the vaccines have been administered.
As the state with the biggest population, California has a tall order to fill. Thus far, only 11.4% of the population has been vaccinated.
The population of California with both doses is at just 3.3%, tying with several other states for the second-lowest percentage. California has received 8,059,325 vaccines, but only 5,820,388 have been used, which means over 2 Million vaccines are just sitting there. Altogether that’s the utilization of 72% of available vaccines. Get vaccinated, California!
Given that it's not a state, it stands to reason that Washington D.C.'s numbers are all on the lower end because the order to fill is just a lot smaller. It's also important to note that vaccines are being administered in order of priority, which means that the elderly and immune-compromised will be getting their shots first.
Thus far, 7.2% of D.C.'s population has been vaccinated. The percentage of people who have received both shots is 2.5%. Currently, 127,535 vaccines have been administered to residents and non-residents.
