A look at who’s getting vaccinated on Long Island
of eligible Long Islanders vaccinated
At a glance, Suffolk County has about 37% of its eligible residents vaccinated, while Nassau County stands at about 46%.
Compared to 37% of New Yorkers in general that have received at least a single dose, Long Island’s vaccination rate is nothing to sneeze at.
The data we received is as recent as April 7 for Nassau County, and April 6 for Suffolk County, right at the cusp of universal eligibility for New Yorkers 16-and-older.
Differing zip code density, vaccination locations and demographics will affect the rate of vaccinations.
For example, Uniondale’s 11553 zip code has 20,690 eligible residents and 26% of them have received at least their first dose. By contrast, Rockville Centre stands at 55%.
Where both counties are similar however is that they are both offering pop-ups for particular communities to get vaccinated, which is absolutely critical in ensuring Long Island’s most vulnerable communities receive the access they need.
