This astrological sign is the least vaccinated: health department



Good health may be written in the stars.

More anti-vaxxers are Scorpios than any other astrological sign while Leos and Aquarians have the highest rates of getting COVID-19 jabs, according to a Utah heath department.

In an effort to keep locals talking about vaccinations, the Salt Lake County Health Department tweeted a chart breaking down the percentage of residents who have received the shots by zodiac sign.

“Now that Mercury is not in retrograde, we’re just going to leave this here… And yes this is based on data,” the department tweeted Tuesday to mixed feedback.

It shows Leos — who are born in July and August and thought to be “compassionate” with strong “leadership qualities” —  had the highest full vaccination rate at 70 percent, followed by Aquarius with 67 percent and Aries and Sagittarius both with 59 percent.

Meanwhile, Scorpios — born in October and November with supposed “emotional” and “loyal” traits — placed at the bottom of the list with only 46 percent fully vaccinated in the county. 

Virgos placed second to last with 50 percent getting the jabs, according to the chart, which is based off birth dates recorded at the time of vaccination.

But some observers called zodiac-centric info as cosmically uncool, saying it’s not reliable.

“Holy hell people. You change the denominator and are surprised? Scorpios are the most common sign, Leos the least. You are simply taking a constant and changing the denominator,” one Twitter user griped.

But the health department defended the tweet, saying it was simply a fun way to open up a dialog about combating the virus.

“What we’re really doing is finding new and different ways to keep our community talking about vaccination when there is significant message fatigue around the topic,” the department said.
