Here are the 10 states currently leading the way in getting the COVID vaccine into Americans’ arms — and the 10 states falling behind

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some 29.4 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been distributed across the states and territories. Only about one-third (10.3 million) of those doses have been administered. And most of those doses were given to health care workers and the staff and residents of long-term-care facilities, Fortune noted.

With only about 3% of U.S. population having received the vaccine so far, how are the individual states doing?

West Virginia is leading the way, significantly out-pacing other states with 6,177 doses administered per 100,000 residents as of Wednesday. It’s followed by South Dakota (5,732 per 100K), North Dakota (5,344), Alaska (5,287), and Vermont (4,739).

The four of the bottom five are Southern states, with Alabama coming in with the worst record so far on per capita vaccinations. The Yellowhammer State has administered 1,714 doses per 100,000 residents, according to the most recent CDC data. It is followed by Georgia (1,872 per 100K), South Carolina (1,940), Nevada (2,002), and Mississippi (2,059).
