This map depicts the HPV vaccination percentages in the United States as of August 2017. It is easy to see the vast differences in HPV vaccination rates in the West and Northeast versus that of the Central states and the Southeast. For more information, you can visit the CDC’s web page covering the HPV vaccine.
In a study by the CDC for the year of 2016, the rates of sexually-transmitted infections (STI) per state was studied. The map seen above shows the comparison of the rates of each state. The state with the highest STI rate in 2016 was Alaska; in comparison, the state with the lowest STI rate was Vermont. It is very interesting to see where the states are that have the higher rates (lower numbers on the scale) and most of them are states in the South East.
