Scorpios, you're the worst at getting vaccinated. These are the zodiac signs doing it better.

Asia's Tech News Daily

Does your zodiac sign influence your likelihood of getting vaccinated?

Probably not.

But that didn’t stop health officials in Utah from investigating vaccination status by astrological sign, finding that vaccination rates varied widely by star sign.

And the news didn’t bode well for Scorpios.

At the top spot were Leos with a 70% vaccination rate, then Aquarius at 67%. At the bottom were Virgos at 50% with Scorpios at dead last at 46%. Three of the top four signs are fire signs.

Aiming to encourage more vaccinations through friendly competition, the Salt Lake County Health Department tweeted the results of their analysis and sparked a flood of tweets as social media users celebrated or bemoaned their star sign’s ranking.

“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 health department said in a tweet.

Among Salt Lake County residents, 59% are fully vaccinated, according to state data.

“Astrological signs are tribal,” Nicholas Rupp, communications manager at the Salt Lake County Health Department, told The Washington Post. “They bring out a competitiveness in people because nobody wants their sign to be ranked lowest, even if you don’t believe in astrology.”

As Leos celebrated their first place, Scorpios on Twitter lamented their spot on the list with many calling it embarrassing.

“Only time I’ve ever been embarrassed about being a Scorpio,” one social media user tweeted.

“Fellow Scorpios I will fight you,” another said.

Even the Health Department joined in on dunking Scorpios in its tweet’s disclaimer.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is backed by science and is in no way influenced by horoscopes,” it said. “But come on Scorpios!”
