Visualizing Racial Disparities in U.S. COVID-19 Vaccinations

Visualization of vaccinations of the Black population.

The New York Times has created a series of visualizations showing racial disparities in COVID-19 vaccination rates in the United States. One visualization compares the share of  vaccinations Black people received in March and May for each state. It shows that in Mississippi, 26 percent of the total vaccinated population in March were Black compared to 34 percent in May. However, Black people make up 38 percent of the total population. Another graph compares the daily vaccination rate per capita across Asian, Black, Hispanic, Native American, and white populations. It shows that Native Americans had the greatest vaccination rate per capita in the first quarter of the year and the white population has had one of the lowest vaccination rates in recent weeks. 

Take a look.
