Racial and ethnic disparities persist when it comes to Covid-19 booster coverage, CDC data shows​

From CNN's Deidre McPhillips

Racial and ethnic disparities in Covid-19 vaccination coverage have improved since vaccinations started about a year ago, but disparities in booster coverage persist, data from the US Centers from Disease Control and Prevention showed.

The CDC published data on booster coverage by race and ethnicity only for the 65 and older population, a higher-risk group that became eligible to receive booster shots earlier than the broader population.

Overall, about 63.5% of seniors in this age group who are eligible to receive a booster have gotten one, according to CDC data. But that varies widely by race and ethnicity:
  • Asian: 82.5% of those eligible have received a booster
  • White: 74.5% of those eligible have received a booster
  • Black: 66.2% of those eligible have received a booster
  • Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander: 63.6% of those eligible have received a booster
  • Hispanic: 62% of those eligible have received a booster
  • American Indian/Alaska Native: 61.2% of those eligible have received a booster
Seniors are eligible to receive a booster dose of Covid-19 vaccine if it’s been at least five months since they completed the initial series of Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna, or at least two months since getting an initial Johnson & Johnson shot. Race and ethnicity is known for about 89% of vaccinations among seniors.

Here’s more on the latest data on vaccination efforts in the US, published Friday by the CDC:
  • Fully vaccinated: 63.3% of the total US population (all ages), about 210 million people
  • Not vaccinated: At least 19.9% of the eligible population (age 5+) has not received any dose of Covid-19 vaccine, at least 62 million people
  • Current pace of vaccinations (seven-day average): 1,035,111 doses are being administered each day
  • Most doses being administered – about 579,000 – are booster doses
  • Only about 275,000 people are initiating vaccination each day
  • About 83 million people have received a booster dose
  • About a quarter of the total US population is now fully vaccinated and boosted
