With many companies racing to develop an effective Covid-19 vaccine but 1 in 3 Americans saying they wouldn’t get vaccinated, the personal-finance website WalletHub released its report on 2020’s States that Vaccinate the Most, as well as accompanying videos.

In order to find out which states vaccinate the most, WalletHub analyzed the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 18 key metrics, ranging from share of vaccinated children to share of people without health insurance to flu vaccination rate among adults.
