FTFA:

"News 19 asked one of the biggest questions surrounding the vaccine percentage: Are all those vaccinated included? If an Alabamian got vaccinated in another state, is it reflected in our states numbers, or theirs?

"We do not have the records of persons who were not vaccinated within our state," said Dr. Landers. "So if a person were vaccinated in Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi... then we do not have their record in Alabama."

News 19 asked a follow-up question: "So do you think that might be part of the problem, why our numbers are so low, is because some people might actually be vaccinated, it just happened in a different state?"
"

Yes. Alabama's numbers are low because every Alabaman wants to get vaccinated, but are too shy to do it in their state, so they leave, get vaccinated, then come back. Because they all have the time to do that.

Some people go out of state to get an abortion.

Others go out of state to get a COVID shot.

30%?

So double the expectation?

Louisiana and Mississippi are even lower.

Madison County has the highest percentage in north Alabama at almost 40%...

Huntsville is in Madison County. Actual rocket scientists.

...while DeKalb County has the lowest at nearly 19%.

DeKalb County, Alabama borders on Georgia. Marjorie Taylor Greene's district. Except for the town of Mentone, I didn't see any Biden/Harris signs when I drove through there.

Gonna be fertile ground for the Delta variant.

You don't need variants. You just need winter.

Summer will lull the unvaccinated into a smug sense of "it's all over and we never even needed a vaccine for this fake pandemic" complacency. They'll believe it's gone and the low & decreasing case/death data will (in their eyes) back them up while the rest of us are happily getting back to a vaccinated normal. Then winter will set in, and they along with us will begin spending time in enclosed spaces like bars watching football, etc.

This winter there won't be masks or travel restrictions or distancing or any of the things we've all been doing to protect each other. They may all flip & decide to go get vaccinated, but likely only after another large wave of cases/deaths focused on such places. It's their funeral. Maybe literally.

On the bright side, it's half the obesity rate and triple the literacy.

I hope that disaster somehow misses them and there isn't a big outbreak in the poorly vaccinated states.

There is a little tiny part of me, though, that is rooting for COVID here.

I pray they're all dead before early voting and absentee ballots go out.

Oh, wait; they're eliminating all that aren't they. Hmm.

This is one of the dumbest things I've read in like 6 months

I've been in the vaccinated elite since January. Alabama is way behind. But, you can't be in an elite group if everyone is, so not all bad.

I live in Alabama. Someone I work with refuses to get a vaccine until it's FDA approved. They also don't mask. It's frustrating to live in a state filled with anti-science inbred chunklefarks.

No health measure that over half the people in the country have done and that is completely free for anyone to do could ever be described as "elite", you Trumpist shill.

I too won't get the shot until it's FDA approved as this whole process has been RUSHED.  I do wear a mask though.

I work in clinical trials and the vaccines were seriously rushed and we don't know long term side effects from the virus OR the vaccines.
