An interactive map created by ABC News shows the states most likely for widespread COVID transmission and how many people would need to be vaccinated before it would be safe to travel in most.
States are grouped by the size of their population, with New York the largest and Texas the smallest.
States with the highest proportion of the population that has been vaccinated include California, where 76 percent of people have been vaccinated, followed by Texas with 67 percent.
The highest percentage of people in Hawaii who have been immunized is 68 percent, followed closely by New York with 68 percent.
States where the proportion of people who have received a vaccination has been higher are Vermont (80 percent), Colorado (78 percent), Maine (77 percent), New Hampshire (76 percent), Connecticut (75 percent), Michigan (75 the state has also had some people who were infected and died but the overall vaccination rate has remained high), New York (73 percent), and California (72 percent).
Here’s a look at how each state fared:The biggest jump in the percentage of the state’s population that’s been vaccinated is in Vermont, which has seen the vaccination rate increase to 87 percent.
New Hampshire, where the vaccine has been delivered, has also seen the number of people vaccinated grow to 71 percent.
New York has the highest rate of people living in the Northeast who have gotten a vaccination, at 79 percent, with Maryland the next highest at 79.5 percent.
In contrast, Rhode Island, home to the state capital, has seen its vaccination rate fall to 70 percent.
A number of New York cities are experiencing some of the highest rates of COVID infection in the nation.
In Boston, for example, one in six people have received vaccinations.
In Washington, D.C., a quarter of the city’s population has received a vaccine, and in New York City, the percentage is more than a quarter.
The other states with the most people who’ve received a shot are California (74 percent), Washington (71 percent), Minnesota (69 percent), Nevada (68 percent), Oregon (67 percent), Utah (67.5), and South Dakota (66 percent).
There are a number of states with relatively high vaccine rates, however.
New Jersey has the most vaccinated residents at 71 percent, while Washington, Oregon, and New York have the highest percentages of people with at least one vaccine.
Colorado has the lowest percentage of vaccinated residents in the country at just 15.6 percent.
As for how many vaccines are required to get a vaccination:There are only a few states where there is a requirement to have at least three vaccinations, while Hawaii has three vaccination requirements.
In New Mexico, New York, California, and Texas, there are only two requirements.
Colorado, however, requires four vaccinations.
New Mexico has the third highest rate in the US, with at nearly half of its population being vaccinated, at 74.9 percent.
That rate is nearly six times higher than the national average of 15.3 percent.
The next highest rate is at Texas with at 58.3%.
California has the second highest rate at 47.6%.
California has also been hit hard by the virus.
New York has been hit especially hard, with a rate of more than one in five people having been vaccinated.
The state has more than 6 million people living with the disease, including more than half of New Yorkers.
Colorado has also suffered from the virus, with nearly one in seven people having received a COVID shot, with the state at an estimated one in three people in the state with the virus at some point.
New Jersey has had more than 50 cases, and the number is nearly three times higher at nearly 10,000.
A total of 9,944 New Jersey residents have been diagnosed with COVID.
Colorado is on track to have nearly 20,000 cases.
The states that are the most likely areas to see a significant spike in COVID infections are in New Jersey, where there are expected to be a number more cases, Washington, where more than 30,000 have been confirmed, and Vermont, where as many as 11,000 people have died from the disease.
In California, there have been no new cases of the disease in more than two years.
A spike in the number in California of new cases, though, has coincided with the coronavirus pandemic.
There are about 5.5 million people in California who have tested positive for COVID, which was the state number in late October.
There are also several other states that have been hit with a spike in new COVID cases.
Colorado saw an increase of more more than 100 cases in the last week, with another increase of about 200 cases expected for the week of June 7.
Utah is on pace to have more than 12,000 new COVEV cases.
And, of course, Hawaii is the state that has suffered the most from the coronovirus.
About 17,000 of the 1.6
