Man, People

This is the number of vaccination doses given per 100,000 people in the U.S. by state:

You don't even need a legend, do you? It's immediately obvious that the lowest vaccination rate is the states with the light green shading. 17 states, 16 of whom voted for Trump (plus Georgia).

Of course, your chances for hospitalization if you catch COVID are no different than they were three months ago. And if you're unvaccinated, your only protection comes from other people being vaccinated. Plus, given the low vaccination rates in those states, the virus is going to have a much longer time to possibly mutate into something that the vaccines aren't effective against (requiring a booster, which will take time). 

I'm trying to be optimistic here, but damn. People.
