When the U.S. government began reporting COVID-19 vaccine data on Jan. 13, no state had vaccinated more than 5% of its population (South Dakota was leading at that time, with 4.8% of its residents having received a shot). A number of states were reporting no vaccinations at all. In just over three months, the rates have improved dramatically in a number of states, while others still lag far behind the national average.
Cheapism teamed up with data visualization service HiGeorge to see how the vaccine rollout is going in each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories. The vaccination rates reported below represent the percentage of residents who have received at least one dose of a vaccine. Use the interactive chart to see in real time how the vaccine rollouts are progressing, from Jan. 13 to today, by hovering over each state's trajectory.
