According to the United States Census, California and New York lead the nation in small-business employers requiring COVID vaccines. Both California and New York were found to have 7.7 percent of small-business employers requiring the experimental injection.

Puerto Rico actually leads U.S. states in small businesses requiring proof of vaccination for their employees.
