Just over a hundred days after the New York City vaccination campaign, 30 percent of adults and half of people over 65 have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. Millions of others have yet to be vaccinated, and the city will have to overcome already significant differences in vaccination coverage between neighborhoods and demographics.

White and Asian New Yorkers are more likely to be vaccinated than Black and Latino residents, who are more likely to die from or be hospitalized with Covid-19, both in New York City and across the country.

Some of the highest vaccination rates are in the city’s wealthiest neighborhoods – places where residents would most likely leave the city at the outbreak of the pandemic. In parts of the Upper West Side and Upper East Side, about half of adults have received at least one injection. In Corona, Queens, where the virus was much more deadly, only 19 percent have.

The rates vary in each of the five boroughs. Nine of the top 10 zip codes where residents have received at least one injection are in Manhattan, which has more vaccine distribution locations than any other borough.

Vaccination sites

Twenty percent of adults in Manhattan are fully vaccinated, compared to 12 percent of adults in Brooklyn.

One of the clearest demographic trends in vaccination is age.

Adults who have received at least one dose

There are more than 1.2 million New Yorkers aged 65 and over, comparable to the entire population of Dallas. Older adults were among the first to qualify for the vaccine, and in general, parts of the city with more elderly residents have a higher rate of vaccinations than others.

While about half of all these New Yorkers have had at least one dose, about 70 percent of those over 65 have not yet been fully vaccinated, suggesting the city still has a way to go even as its suitability for younger groups grows .

The other clear demographic trend is race and ethnicity.

Neighborhoods with mainly white residents, such as the Upper East and Upper west side Riverdale in the Bronx, Breezy Point in Queens, the center of the island and the south coast of Staten Island, city averages are outperforming.

Most black and Latino neighborhoods in much of Queens, Brooklyn, Upper Manhattan, and the Southern Bronx are in some cases 20 to 30 percentage points behind neighborhoods at the top of the list. Morris Park Pelham Bay, and Co-op City in the Bronx are exceptions. People of color make up the majority of these neighborhoods, where more than 35 percent of residents have received at least one dose.

The reasons for the differences vary, and not all of them will be apparent simply by looking at a map. Many seniors are housebound or have trouble navigating complex and confusing websites to sign up for the vaccine (obstacles aren’t just for seniors, really).

For Black and Latino New Yorkers, some studies have shown greater hesitation about a vaccine, although the barriers to entry are an equal, if not more, challenge.

For non-English speakers, language barriers can cause fear and confusion. For poorer residents, it’s just harder (and more expensive) to take a few hours or a day or two off to get a chance.

The city takes an average of 60,000 to 70,000 shots per day. At that rate, it will take months to reach the remaining seven million New Yorkers, including children, who are not yet eligible for a vaccine.
