Recent data from the New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS) show increases over the past month in COVID-19 vaccination rates within many Rochester census tracts.
Monroe County and the City of Rochester partnered to bring vaccine closer to where people live and prefer to go, including community locations such as churches and recreation centers. Increased vaccination rates in many City neighborhoods shown in the map above may illustrate the crucial impact of those efforts, and this census tract level data will continue to inform targeted vaccination locations to ensure access by communities with the highest need.
Visit the RocHealthData map room to see these data, as well as additional census tract-level data including the CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index.
These vaccination data are made available through the collaborative efforts of the Finger Lakes Vaccine Hub, the Finger Lakes Hub Task Force, the Rochester Regional Health Information Organization, the University of Rochester Medical Center, Common Ground Health, and the RocHealthData team.
The Finger Lakes COVID-19 Vaccine Hub also shares detailed information about vaccine rates among the currently eligible population across the nine-county region, updated weekly. Visit their site to compare rates across counties, zip codes, and access more demographic information.
