According to statistics released Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, states that had some of the country’s highest Covid-19 incidence rates over the previous week also experienced the greatest number of new immunizations per capita, according to the data.
Tennessee, which had the highest incidence of Covid-19 cases in the country, had the sixth-highest percentage of new vaccinations per capita in the United States during the previous week.

According to the department, many hospitals are facing capacity limitations, which is in contrast to what we saw during the pandemic, which urged people to obtain their vaccinations and noted that the majority of cases and admissions are among the unvaccinated population.
Approximately 42.1% of the population has received all of their vaccinations. According to data from Alabama, which had the country’s second-worst case rate, the state had the greatest number of new Covid-19 vaccines per capita in the previous week.
On Thursday, the state recorded a positive rate of 22 percent and classified every single one of its counties as having a “high” level of community transmission, according to the state. According to statistics from the United States Department of Health & Human Services, more than 3,000 individuals were admitted to hospitals throughout the state because of the illness.
Approximately 38.6 percent of Alabama citizens have received all of their recommended vaccinations. In addition to Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Kentucky, and South Carolina, many other states are reporting among of the country’s worst-case rates while also reporting large numbers of new immunizations.
According to statistics from the Department of Health and Human Services, the number of Covid-19 admissions in the United States has been continuously increasing since July but has begun to show indications of recovery.
According to statistics from the Department of Health and Human Services, total hospitalizations almost quadrupled in July. They doubled again in August, and for the last eight Sundays, total hospitalizations have been an average of 25 percent more than the previous week.
However, the overall number of hospitalizations in the United States increased by just 2% during the previous seven days. According to the latest data, there were 134 fewer new hospitalizations during the week of August 24 than was the previous week.
Hospitalizations for Covid-19 in Florida as well as Texas represent almost 30 percent of all current hospitalizations in the United States, according to the CDC. Hospitalizations in Florida have decreased by 11 percent over the last week, while hospitalizations in Texas have remained stable, both of which have contributed significantly to the improvement in national trends overall.
However, hospitalizations for Covid-19 continue to be dangerously high; according to HHS statistics, there are now 102,804 individuals hospitalized in the United States for the virus, which is 72 percent of the way to a peak from mid-January. In general, hospitals throughout the nation are almost three-quarters full, with intensive care units (ICUs) filling around 80 percent of their capacity.
