Your information in the article Undervaccinated red states are nowhere near herd immunity as dangerous Delta variant spreads is not accurate
Andrew Romano’s article on June 11, 2021 contains some misinformation and doesn’t consider demographics. His article says that Utah only has 34% of the population vaccinated. The CDC article it quotes this from 1) was from June 2nd and 2) didn’t have information for Utah in the article. Currently, 1,271,608 people in Utah have received both vaccines, which is 39.7% of Utahns. Also, our demographic has a greater younger population than any other state. We have about 600,000 kids who are not eligible for the vaccine yet. That is about 25% of our population. So perhaps instead of making this an article that is pro Democrat states and anti Republican states, your reporter could dig a little deeper abs show us of all of those eligible to get the vaccine, what are the percentages, and then maybe report actual percentages. We are trying. Our 12-15 population was only made eligible 4 weeks ago. Give us some credit and stop making it political. 47% of our population has gotten the first vaccine. That’s 62% of all eligible. And of all of those eligible, we have 53% of our population vaccinated, with about 89 % of our older high risk population vaccinated. Please report accurately, do some digging and find the rates of vaccination for those eligible, and stop making this pandemic political. It does nothing but divide us further.
