For many months the NY Times ran a state map of Covid cases side-by-side with a map of vaccination status. During the summer months, when the less vaccinated southern states were seeing an uptick in cases, the narrative of vaccine protection was served. However, more recent data show that many of the most vaccinated states are also the most affected by the latest uptick in cases. It seems that the false narrative peddled by the NYT (ie more vax, fewer cases) was not supported upon quick visual comparison between the two. So now the vax map is hidden a couple clicks removed from the homepage.
