10 Alabama counties with the highest COVID-19 vaccination rate


While the omicron surge appears to be waning in Alabama, as seen in a decrease in daily new COVID cases and positivity rate, the state still has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the nation.

Vaccines have been readily available in the United States since 2021 and according to the Alabama Department of Public Health, 2,828,340 people in the state have received one or more doses of a coronavirus vaccine. Since March 2020, the department has reported 1,262,018 cases of COVID-19, and Friday’s data showed the state had a 19.6% positivity rate — or the number of submitted COVID tests that come back positive.

These are the 10 counties with the highest vaccination rate as of February 10. Due to reporting delays, data may differ from that reported by the Alabama Department of Public Health.
