Flu vaccination coverage for adults is highest in West Virginia, lowest in Louisiana. Where does your state rank on flu, HPV, pneumococcal and 5 other vaccines?

From the share of children receiving the combined 7-vaccine series and teenagers receiving immunization against HPV to share of adults aged ≥65 with a zoster and a pneumococcal vaccination, a new survey by WalletHub examined the 50 states and District of Columbia across 18 key categories related to vaccination and ranked them from highest to lowest.

Also factored into the rankings for each state was a measure of its immunization uptake disparities and influencing factors.

For each of 8 key vaccination measures, we list the top 5 states with the highest rate or share of population and the 5 states with the lowest. For methodology and full survey results, visit WalletHub.
