MADISON, Wis.– Public Health Madison & & Dane County shared brand-new information Friday consisting of vaccination rates by location.
The data was taped from May 10 to 23. The darker blue spots suggest locations with lower vaccination rates, while lighter blue locations contain rates up of 70% or more. Health authorities stated there are normally lower vaccination rates in places in distant municipalities in the county.
The Village of Brooklyn had amongst the least expensive vaccination rates in the county, with 37% of locals having finished the vaccine series. The most vaccinated villages in Dane County consisted of Perry and Medina, while much of Madison had vaccination rates higher than 70%. The variety among all municipalities was from 37 to 98%.
Health authorities stated there might be numerous factors regarding why vaccination rates are lower in these locations, which is what makes the above maps beneficial for determining locations that might take advantage of further outreach or mobile vaccination centers.
Health specialists state geographical variations can result in COVID “hotspots” where break outs are most likely.
PHMDC said it geocoded addresses of people with a COVID vaccine, which are recorded in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry.
Some people who reside in Dane County might not be represented in WIR information, such as UW-Madison trainees who have a home address which is listed outside of the county. As such, vaccination rates around the Isthmus and other locations where trainees live might be artificially low as a result.

As far as census systems in cities and bigger towns, there were lower vaccination rates in Sun Prairie, Madisons north and south sides and areas close to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The series of all census tracts was in between 21 to 97%.
PHMDC included that some addresses merely can not be geocoded, implying health authorities might not put 4% of immunized individuals within a specific town or system.
