Get a quick look at the 5 states ranking highest and lowest on metrics including flu vaccination, tetanus vaccination, HPV vaccination, and more.
Vaccination is a safe and effective way to reduce the prevalence and severity of various diseases, such as influenza, human papillomavirus (HPV), and meningitis. However, vaccine hesitancy —while not a new phenomenon—is still prevalent nationally. To determine where Americans are most and least responsible about getting vaccinated, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 16 metrics including adult and child influenza vaccination rate, share of children with up-to-date HPV vaccination, and herpes zoster vaccination rate among older adults. In the slides below, find out which states ranked highest and lowest on each of those metrics and more.
