Percent of Total Population that has Received a COVID-19 Vaccine Dose by Race/Ethnicity, Selected States, November 15, 2021
NR indicates data are not reported. *NM is excluded from the total across states due to non-comparable bridged race categories. **ND is excluded from the total across states because data on number of people vaccinated by R/E are not available. ***PA excludes data for Philadelphia due to differences in reporting. As of 6/21, PA total population data was updated to exclude Philadelphia; data should not be compared to earlier periods due to these data changes or corrections. As of 6/30, Nebraska has permanently stopped updating its dashboard. Data may not be comparable across states due to differences in reporting periods and racial/ethnic classifications. As of 9/08, Kansas removed non-resident data, resulting in a decrease in overall vaccination counts. As of 9/21, KFF transitioned from reporting NH total vaccination counts to resident vaccination counts, resulting in a decrease in overall vaccination counts. As of 9/21, KFF began reporting fully vaccinated people for Illinois. As of 10/18, data for Arizona represent doses by county of residence versus county of administration, resulting in the exclusion of doses administered to out of state residents. Data should not be compared to earlier periods due to this data change. As of 10/18, KFF transitioned from reporting HI total number of people initiating vaccination to reporting total number of initiated doses, resulting in an increase in overall vaccination counts. As of 11/15, the vaccination rates for Black people in Oregon and Hispanic people in Vermont exceeded 100%, this is likely due to the approximate nature of the total population estimates used to calculate rates. These rates are reported as >99%. States vary in whether they include or exclude Hispanic people from their racial groups and in their racial classifications. Total population data used to calculate rates is matched to each states’ racial classification approach. Percentages and percentage points may not sum due to rounding. Rates may not match those reported on state websites due to differences in the source for total population data and/or ages included in the total population.SOURCE:Vaccination data based on KFF analysis of publicly available data on state websites; total population data used to calculate rates based on KFF analysis of 2019 American Community Survey data.
