(Mike Osborne)  --  Half of all states have vaccinated at least half of their adult populations against COVID-19, but Tennessee is not among their number.

As of Tuesday morning, Tennessee has fully vaccinated just 32 percent of all adult residents. Compare that to Maine where 62 percent of residents are now fully immunized.

Williamson County has one of the state’s highest vaccination rates at 43 percent. Metro Davidson County stands at 39 percent. Rutherford County has vaccinated 28 percent of eligible adults.

Moore County in southern Middle Tennessee has vaccinated just 14 percent of its adult population.
