What are the states have the most vaccinated citizens? WalletHub just dove into the data.

There is a lot of controversy around vaccines but in the end they are the reason for a lot of disease not being widespread including smallpox, has even been eradicated completely, with no natural cases since 1977. I like the way these results are broke down as we are able to see each age group.

I have a friend that is anti vaccines for her kids and she has her reasoning and I support whatever she thinks is best but it's not for me. If we never vaccinated people this world would be a lot less populated and in much more turmoil because we never would have advanced as much as we have, to some that may be a good thing.

I had mentioned before they break these down by age groups:

  • The state that vaccinates children the most: Massachusetts
  • The state that has the most adults and elderly vaccinated: Vermont
  • Immunization Uptake Disparities and Influencing Factors Rank: #1 Vermont

The opposite of that is:

  • The state that vaccinates children the least: Mississippi
  • The state that has the least adults and elderly vaccinated: Florida
  • Immunization Uptake Disparities and Influencing Factors Rank: Last is New Mexico

Idaho ranks overall at #38 for vaccinated individuals.
