Counties with the highest COVID-19 vaccination rate in Michigan

As has been true throughout America’s COVID-19 history, every state—and every county therein—has its own COVID-19 story, driven by local policies and behaviors. The United States as of Nov. 26 had reached776,349 COVID-19-related deaths and 48.2 million COVID-19 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University. As of Feb. 2, more Americans had been vaccinated for COVID-19 than had been infected, and though breakthrough infections are continuing to be studied by the CDC and other health organizations, vaccines have reduced the number of hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19.

Stacker compiled a list of the counties with highest COVID-19 vaccination rates in Michigan using data from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Counties are ranked by the highest vaccination rate as of Nov. 24, 2021. Keep reading to see whether your county ranks among the highest COVID-19 vaccination rates in your state.
