From Pensacola to Fernandina Beach to the Keys, Florida is filled with pockets where few are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Now Floridians can check the vaccination levels where they live. The Tampa Bay Times prepared an interactive map that shows the vaccination level and demographics of most of the state’s ZIP codes so you can find out what the vaccination picture looks like in your area.
The data is from the Florida Department of Health, which shows how many residents received a coronavirus vaccine shot by ZIP code as of June 9. It is the latest, most granular data available, revealing that in 60 percent of ZIP codes less than half of residents were vaccinated. In 20 percent of ZIP codes fewer than one out of every three residents were vaccinated.
Just 13 percent of ZIP codes had a vaccination rate of 70 percent or higher.
Public health experts say these pockets remain vulnerable to new outbreaks of the coronavirus, especially as the highly infectious Delta variant spreads. Experts believe it is more virulent and could become the dominant strain of COVID-19 in the U.S. An Associated Press analysis found the unvaccinated account for the vast majority of COVID-19 deaths.
To find out how vaccinated your area is, hover the cursor over your ZIP code.
About the data
The Florida Department of Health turned over vaccination data by ZIP code as of June 9. The Times analysis compared vaccination numbers to 2019 demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The data covers 983 of Florida’s 992 non-PO Box ZIP codes. The missing ZIP codes either don’t appear in the vaccination data or are too small to include demographic data from the census. The ZIP code data tracks how many in Florida have received one shot of a coronavirus vaccine. It does not track how many are fully vaccinated.
