Mississippi is the state where residents are the least likely to get vaccinated. That is the finding of a new study by the personal finance website WalletHub.
The survey was based on 18 metrics including share of vaccinated children, share of people without health insurance, and presence of reported measles outbreaks.
Mississippi was last for teens and children vaccination rates, and last for adult vaccination rates. It was last for percentage of children who have gotten the Meningitis ACWY vaccine, last for percentage of children who have gotten the HPV vaccine and second to last for percentage of children who have gotten flu shots.
For adults, Mississippians were last in getting shingles vaccinations and tetanus vaccinations.
Alabama ranked as the 39th most vaccinated state and Florida was 41st.
