Nearly 40% of Teton County is completely vaccinated against the coronavirus, the highest vaccination rate of Wyoming’s counties.

According to the Wyoming Department of Health, 39.7% of the county’s residents have received either two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or have been given the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The state halted the distribution of the Johnson&Johnson vaccine on April 13, after it was linked to a rare form of blood clotting.

This data showed that not only was Teton County’s overall vaccination rate the highest in the state, but so was its percentage of vaccinated adults age 18 and older (48.8%), and those over the age of 65 (66.8%).

Despite the high vaccination rate, Teton County has chosen to continue its mask mandate into next month.

The county’s total rate was significantly higher than all other counties in the state, none of which had seen more than 30% of their residents vaccinated.

The county with the second-highest rate vaccination rate was Hot Springs, with 27.4% — 34.3% of adults 18 and older receiving the vaccine and 55.3% of adults 65 and older being completely vaccinated.

The county with the lowest overall vaccination rate was Campbell, with only 11.5% of residents being completely vaccinated against the virus. Only 15.6% of adults 18 and older in the county were completely vaccinated (the lowest among this demographic in the entire state), while 37% of adults 65 and older were vaccinated.

Sheridan County had the lowest percentage of adults 65 and older vaccinated against the virus, 36.1%.
