Vaccination rates tick upward in states with surging Covid cases

Amid rising cases of Covid-19 across the country, states with the biggest increases are also reporting an uptick in vaccinations.

"In the past week, the five states with the highest case rates Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri and Nevada had a higher rate of people getting newly vaccinated compared to the national average," Jeff Zients, the White House Covid-19 response coordinator, said during a White House briefing Thursday. "People in these states are feeling the impact of being unvaccinated and responding with action."

According to NBC News data, the United States is averaging 699 first doses per 100,000 residents in the past seven days. That's up from 590 the week before.

In Louisiana, which has the highest rate of new infections in the country, the current vaccination rate is 964 first doses per 100,000 residents, according to an NBC News analysis. In Arkansas, the state with the second highest infection rate, vaccination rates are even higher, at 2,128.

Perhaps GOP Governors in Florida and Texas will spin this as their effort to think outside of the box. Rather than tell people that they should be cautious and get vaccinated, Republicans minimized the danger of COVID and aggressively rolled back efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, thus causing infection rates to spike such that 40 percent of new COVID cases in the U.S. come from three red States, Florida, Texas and Missouri. As a result of this spike along with hospitals being overrun, people are now getting vaccinated!

So, there you go. All you needed to do is to kill more people through the spread of vaccine misinformation, which causes more deaths, then folks will then get the vaccine! Since it Republicans can't be that callous, perhaps they are just engaging in reverse psychology?

3. Covid will be here as long as there are Americans who have to learn the hard way.

They think that the longer they wait, the less danger the virus will be for them because everyone else's vaccinations will protect them.

10. That Sounds Like a Mistake In Ordering By the Hospitals

In the hospitals in California, they just decrease orders or turn down allotments to avoid the waste. I understand in early January when vaccines were restricted to health care workers that you might have hospitals with supplies, but could not actually use them, but now throwing away vaccines is more of a reflection of poor planning.
