3. Two countries.... just like everything else in this country.

Two universes, actually. New cases are nearly all in the unvaccinated population, and at this point - in Washington state, anyway - the vaccine is available EVERYwhere, so it's the anti-vaxx folks refusing the vaccine who are getting Covid.

"....of King County’s recent COVID-19 cases, 97% had occurred in unvaccinated people.
It effectively meant the only people still catching coronavirus here in King County are people who haven’t gotten the shots. It also means the disease that just a few months ago threatened the entire nation is now almost exclusively circulating among a shrinking few.
In the 98022 ZIP code, in the Enumclaw area, only 52.9% of the folks there 12 and up had been vaccinated as of this past week — which is one of the lowest rates in King County. In the two-week period ending in mid-May, that ZIP code also had the highest COVID case rate in the county, at more than 400 cases per 100,000 people.
At the same time, there are ZIP codes with vaccination rates that top 90%, and these had disease rates ranging from just one-fourth to one-tenth of Enumclaw’s. Examples include Sammamish and Mercer Island."
....of the 15,397 positive cases, 14,895 were in people who hadn’t been fully vaccinated. That’s 96.7% of all local cases in April and May.
the Washington State Department of Health reports that between April 3 and May 29, there were 1,358 “breakthrough” cases in which someone who was fully vaxxed still caught COVID. But during that same period, the state reported 63,751 cases among the unvaccinated — which is 98% of the total.
“We’re getting to the point where it’s a tale of two societies,” says Dr. Umair Shah, the state health secretary."
